The most amazing...
...thing I've designed is a 'fluent' timeseries analysis library for financial mathematicians as well as a generic OLAP cube that manipulates objects.
  • Director of Modeling and Technology
    Element Capital Management
    2010 - PRESENT
    • Designed and developed a custom language & API for multi-dimensional timeseries analysis in C#.
    • Designed and developed an in-memory timeseries datastore for quick access to financial models with indices and asynchronous replication.
    • Designed and developed the infrastructure used to price the firm’s position and to calculate risks, scenarios, and VaR.
    • Wrote various financial models to price trades including FX vanilla options, FX exotic options, and equity index options.
    • Organized code structure and managed code workflow for the entire technology team.
    • Designed and developed a plugin framework to allow quick delivery of financial models as well as code separation between quantitative developers and infrastructure developers.
    • Participated in the development of various tools used by traders including a multi asset trade pricer, a tool for plotting/analyzing timeseries, various trade blotters, tools to help with execution, and a pnl attribution tool.
    Technologies: C#, Excel, F#, ZeroMQ, SQL

    • Implemented an alternative to block filtering using the modified discrete cosine transform.
    • Analyzed and presented results using Microsoft Excel.
    Technologies: C, H.264
  • Data Analytics Platform (Development)

    I designed an OLAP cube that can manipulate complex objects instead of raw data. I used this cube to manipulate timeseries of financial models. This allowed my team members to create and run very complex financial analyses without having to code anything.
