I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Statistical Sciences supervised by Prof. Sebastian Jaimungal. My main research interests are in stochastic portfolio theory, stochastic optimal control and portfolio selection problems. I am also a University of Toronto "lifer" having received a BSc in Actuarial Science (2009), a Masters in Mathematical Finance (2010) and a MSc in Statistics (2015) all from UofT. Interspersed between my studies is some professional experience, mostly spent at Canada Pension Plan Investment Board in the Total Portfolio Management and Quantitative Equities groups.
