I am a researcher at Squarepoint Capital where I use statistical models and Machine Learning algorithms to analyze financial data.
Prior to this, I was a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Statistics at Columbia University working with Andrew Gelman. I was jointly appointed at the Earth Institute and the Data Science Institute. I received my Ph.D. from McGill University in 2016 under the supervision of Mark Coates (Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering) and Thomas Shultz (Psychology Department). I obtained my M.Eng. from McGill University (2012) and my B.Sc. from Sharif University (2010).
