A bit about who I am and why I blog:
I find blogging a simple way to structure my learning and notes online. This site therefore primarily documents my learning.

My education:
I have an M.Sc degree in Economics from Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research, a research institute funded by India’s central bank, the RBI. I also have a background in electrical engineering and got my B.Tech from NIT Warangal.

Interests:
I’m interested in econometrics, time series analysisstatistical / machine learning and how they apply to problems within economics and finance. Also, I think I might also pass off as a closeted student of computer science.

Professional history:
In the past I have worked in the quants team of CRISIL carrying out model validation according to the Federal Reserve’s SR 11-7 letter (appropriateness and quality of inputs, soundness of methodology, correctness of implementation with respect to model specification, and adherence to model governance) for regulatory submissions by CRISIL’s banking clients. I currently work at MSCI, in an agile software development team, carrying out regression and implementation tests for MSCI’s latest analytics platform (Beon).

City I call home:
I live in Mumbai!
