I am a software engineer who has leveraged my interest in maths and programming to pursue a successful career applying technology to solve business problems and uplift platforms within the financial services industry.

After completing a Masters degree in Computer Science, I joined a graduate program in an investment bank and started to work on pricing and vol marking platforms for equity derivatives. Whilst working there, I realised that I had a keen interest in understanding the application of mathematics in financial models for risk and pricing, so I started doing a part-time degree in in Mathematical Finance at Oxford. Upon finishing, I joined Goldman Sachs as a quantitative developer. Throughout my career, I have been involved in a number of exciting projects and as I moved between different roles and worked with many talented people, I felt constantly challenged and motivated to develop my knowledge and skills. As part of the cross-asset quoting team, I built distributed scalable pricing frameworks to allow running risk, pricing, scenarios, collaborating with the business on projects to streamline and automate business functions. Lately, I have been involved in exciting new developments for automated quoting in the rates space.
