I am a Lecturer of Financial Mathematics at King's College London. In the past I have been a Postdoctoral Researcher at Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne and a Research Associate at the University of Washington. I completed my PhD in Mathematics at the University of Toronto. My research interests are in stochastic control, limit order books models, algorithmic trading, and market microstructure.
