Note all 5 questions must now be answered in order for you to be approved for the group. #1 What is your interest in QF ? Why are you drawn to it ?

I love large datasets, programming, mathematics, and economics.

What do you hope this group will do for you?

I hope to meet industry professionals and get a more real-world taste of the field.

The main purpose of this group is for local NY/NJ Quants and Quant wannabe's to meet in person or discuss on the message board. Would you be interested in actively participating on the Message Boards or meeting in person?

Yes, I would.

What is your professional background ? What was/is your careerpath to QF ?

I have degrees in mathematics, psychology and philosophy and a graduate degree in experimental psychology. After working, I decided I wanted something more quantitative and real-world that would still take advantage of my math and programming skills.

The Wilmott Forums, Quantnet.org and Nuclearphynance are great online financial engineering communities. The purpose of this group specifically is to encourage active group participation. Have you RSVP'd yet YES/NO/MAYBE for our next event?

I will once I join!

Introduction

I'm a Ph.D. student in Economics at Fordham starting my dissertation on foreign exchange derivatives.
