I teach many graduate courses in our Financial Mathematics Professional Master’s Program. I particularly love engaging graduate students in areas of financial mathematics; the material is exciting, cutting edge, and fun to apply and relate to current events and states of financial markets. At the undergraduate level, I teach upper-level optimization electives, as well as calculus courses. I enjoy teaching at this level, showing undergraduate students why the mathematics we study is important and relevant. Currently, I am involved in the study of liquidity modeling in mathematical finance. I recently began the study of leveraging and volatility derivatives, which has been of particular interest to me.
