This blog primarily documents my learning. I find blogging a simple way to structure my learning and notes online.
I have an M.Sc in Economics from Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research, an advanced 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.
Back in 2016, I pursued a brief internship at a Fin-tech payments start-up and got a flavor of data science at the workplace. I am always learning and exploring. I’m interested in econometrics, time series analysis, statistical / machine learning and how they apply to problems within economics and finance.
In the past I have worked in the quants arm 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 model validation of MSCI’s latest analytics platform (Beon). I’m based out of India’s financial capital, Mumbai.
