Service Description

I am a recent graduate with substantial quantitative skills including statistics and econometrics, financial modeling, asset valuation, operations research, and optimization with a strong understanding of energy and commodity markets – in particular, electricity markets and power generation optimization.
In asset valuation, key skills include discounted cash flow, stochastic DCF (using Monte Carlo simulation), and real options valuation (discounting risk at the source, as well as modeling and pricing management’s options).
In operations research, I am familiar with linear, integer, and stochastic programming. I have studied many different solution methods, including simplex, interior point, branch and bound, cutting planes, Lagrangians, and Benders’ decomposition. I am also familiar with heuristic methods such as tabu search, simulated annealing, evolutionary algorithms, and ant colony optimization.
Software I use includes the Microsoft Office suite, Crystal Ball, @Risk, Precision Tree, EViews, AMPL, GAMS, LaTeX, and some SQL and C.
