As an interdisciplinary behavioral economist, I like to combine mathematical models from economics, finance and psychology with data driven approaches from statistics and computer science. 

I am an Economist and founding member of the Research team currently responsible for developing mathematical and statistical models that support Libretto's investment methodology. I apply leading edge research in quantitative finance, asset pricing, portfolio theory and behavioral finance. 

I am also an Assistant Professor of Economics at Minerva Schools at KGI, a new liberal arts university implementing active learning.
