Years of experience



I am an experienced Quant and Trader with a proven track record in the investment banking industry. My expertise lies in electronic trading systems, quantitative research, and development. I hold a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Mathematical Finance from Imperial College London, which has provided me with a strong foundation in finance and quantitative methods. Over the years, I have honed my skills in statistical arbitrage, data analysis, and developing trading strategies. Additionally, I have obtained several graduate diplomas in automata theory, data analysis, modelling experimental data, statistical inference, and probability. Currently, I work as a Quantitative Analyst at NatWest Markets Plc, where I focus on fixed income relative value and backtesting frameworks, DMO auction strategies, and multivariate statistical methods for quant trading. Before this, I spent nearly a decade as a Quant Trader and Researcher, specializing in quant trading strategy research and statistical arbitrage. My previous roles include being a Senior Trader and Quant at Mizuho International plc, where I worked on fixed income quant strategy research, ION trading system analytics, and swaps trading. I also served as a Quantitative Analyst at Mitsubishi UFJ Securities International plc, where I gained experience in cross-asset modelling, Monte Carlo methods, and managing C++ libraries. My technical skills include proficiency in Python, R, SQL, and C++.

Best back-end engineers I've ever worked with...​

“I interviewed about a dozen different firms. DevsData LLC is truly exceptional – their backend developers are some of the best I’ve ever worked with. I’ve worked with a lot of very well-qualified developers, locally in San Francisco, and remotely, so that is not a compliment I offer lightly. I appreciate their depth of knowledge and their ability to get things done quickly. “
