I have been teaching at NYU in the Finance Department since 2008, where I teach economics, finance, statistics, and psychology / behavioral econ courses.

I did undergrad at the University of Pennsylvania, Wharton School, and grad school at Harvard.

I spend most of my time managing a hedge fund (fixed income and derivatives arbitrage) and doing financial and strategic consulting, or teaching at NYU, but I enjoy continuing to help a select group of students on an individual basis, as well. Please don't hesitate to reach out if I might be able to help. It never hurts to check, explore, and discuss.

I have lots of experience helping students that need a bit more help, from undergrads to experienced professionals with decades of industry experience. I'm happy to help with subjects in the areas of: finance (e.g., corporate, valuation, securities, trading, derivatives), economics (e.g., micro or macro), business math, stat, forecasting, statistical analysis or quantitative modeling, psychology, business ethics, behavioral econ, social neuroscience or neuroeconomics, decision science, management strategy, economic history. I have experience teaching in all of them, almost all in proper university classes, and consult in these areas on a daily basis.

As a hedge fund manager and consultant, my work in industry often relates to trading, risk management, the alternative asset industry, quantitative strategies, fixed income and derivative products, and other related topics.

But I also develop a range of custom quantitative solutions from clients outside the finance industry that want something better and more sophisticated. These range from sales projections and revenue forecasting, to quantitative legal analysis, financial and quantitative elements of business contracts and deals, valuation of companies and investments or deals, and various forms of sophisticated statistical analysis for business and investing applications. My clients are both small and large: from firms with only one or two partners, start-ups, small and mid-size, to Fortune 500 industrials and major investment banks; across many different industries.
