Experience

I work as a quantitative researcher on the buy side, finding new sources of alpha and designing relative value models and trading strategies around them. I've dealt with practically all the major asset classes.
Presently at Lord Abbett, one of the oldest asset management firms to still actively innovate and push the envelope.
Previously at Parkcentral Capital Management, the hedge fund division of Perot Investments.

Education

PhD in Economics from Princeton University.
SB in Economics from MIT.


I live in New York City with my wife and daughter.

comment Why does the Bible contain many instances of group or tribal punishment and guilt?
I think you have the question backwards. Given that God is the ultimate source of justice, how can we say Western society is just?

comment Reconciling the evidence for the Uncertainty Principle with belief in an omniscient G-d
@AdamRedwine I think logic is in a completely different category, and while I personally believe God is bound by logic, I think this is more a statement about our own capacity for logic than about God.

@AdamRedwine The way I see it, that still does not present a problem. God is not part of the universe, for He created the universe. It does not matter that it is unknowable to people or animals or anything else in the universe, God is not "included" in the universe because God created the universe. The answer is, ultimately, either one you are instantly satisfied with or you will never be satisfied with any answer.

comment Is hamsa allowed?
The pagan origins are "theories" according to wikipedia, while the true origin is unknown. If the origin truly is Islam and Middle Eastern (non-Jewish) culture, is it still forbidden?

comment Why do we call it “candle-lighting” time?
@WAF, well, the question is, why not call it something like "just to be safe Shabbat start time" or "recommended Shabbat start time" since, after all, you can still light candles before or after that time?
