About me

I am currently a PhD student in Financial Mathematics and Actuarial Science at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) under the supervision of Carole Bernard and Steven Vanduffel and researcher of the Finance and Insurance (FINS) group.

Additionally, with Lorenzo Mercuri and Edit Rroji, I am investigating on developments and applications of CARMA models in topics of finance and actuarial science.

I have also a taste for computational finance, general programming and open source.

Member of AMASES (Association for Mathematics Applied to Social and Economic Sciences) and jury member for master's thesis at the Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences and Solvay Business School of VUB.

Below and in the other sections you will find more details about me and my research.
