Summary

I have a Bachelor's degree with Honours in Pure Mathematics and a PHD in Operations Research. I have been a Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor in Mathematics and Computational Finance at Australian and American Universities. I have used a wide variety of mathematical software including Mathematica, Matlab, Reduce, Macsyma, Theorist, Lisp and Derive, as well as the traditional programs Fortran and C. I have had PHD students in both Mathematics and Finance. I have done consulting in mathematical finance, computational finance, biostatistics and financial option evaluation. For the past 2&1/2 years I have been employed as a research director and programmer to design automated trading systems for private trading firms. My goal is to continue research into optimizing automated intraday trading programs.
