In the Fall semester 2022 I am teaching SI340: Theory of Computation


I come to the US Naval Academy after more than 25 years in the Financial Industry, where I worked on applyiong AI, Machine Learning and NLP to process financial data and extract actionable information.

I am interested in applying modern computer science technologies to quantifying, interpreting and ultimately better understanding complex topical domains (such as financial markets) presented by heterogensous input data, including time series data, text, and beyond.


I hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Columbia University in New York (1993). I also hold the CFA designation (Chartered Financial Analyst) from the CFA Institute (2001).
