About Chris

I hold a PhD in Statistics and a PhD Minor in Finance from Berkeley. I have twelve years of teaching and tutoring experience. I help with homework, exams, applied research, infrastructure development, dissertations and various miscellaneous objectives. When it comes to data analysis and programming, I use Matlab, R, SPSS, SAS, JMP or Stata.

My knowledge of statistics and quantitative finance rests on my academic training and the practical experience that I obtained while working in the financial industry. For that reason I am capable of helping my clients with a wide spectrum of tasks, from derivation of backward Kolmogorov equations for Markov chains to performing analysis of real world macroeconomics data in Stata. I offer assistance on the hourly basis and fixed fee basis. My rates depend on the nature of the project and how much training and experience the project requires. The default hourly rate corresponds to something like teaching the method of maximum likelihood to a university student.

The following is a list of covered fields in very broad terms: classic statistical methods, Bayesian modeling, data mining, biostatistics, probability and stochastic processes, time series analysis, analysis of insurance and investment risks, asset management and asset valuation (including derivatives). In the past, I have worked with many types of clients, from high school students to sociology professors and portfolio managers. I make every effort to customize my teaching strategy to the client’s background and, over the years, I have developed certain “know how” in this direction.
