It is an exciting area where mathematical skills are valued. In contrast with being an academic mathematician, quants work on problems that are of direct interest to many people around them. Also, finance is tied in with the rest of the world.
I'd like to spend time talking about finance with people. I'd also like to meet people to study for interviews with. Long-term, members of this group could form a nice network of friends as I move about in the finance world.
Yes. Both the message boards and meeting in person.
BS/MS electrical engineering. PhD (pure) math (analysis/PDE/inverse-problems). Finishing a three year postdoc in applied math at Columbia. I've been working on Monte Carlo methods. See: www.columbia.edu/~il2176
I haven't seen this event listing but will go to any event that I am in town for.
I am a postdoc at Columbia University (applied math) who is looking to learn about and move into quantitative finance. www.columbia.edu/~il2176
