Bio

Vijay Nadimpalli graduated from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati in 2018 with a Bachelor of Technology in Mathematics and Computing with a minor in Finance. During his undergraduate studies, he gained exposure to various Financial Engineering courses, including Stochastic Calculus for Finance. He was fascinated with the ways in which various derivative securities are priced, and how mathematical modeling techniques are used to make sense of the underlying randomness in financial markets. After graduation, he built his data science skills at Samsung, where he worked as a research engineer for 2 years. At Samsung, his strong quantitative background along with his programming skills enabled him to build end to end deep learning-based NLP systems. Along with participating in various Financial Data Science competitions, he recently worked on building statistical arbitrage based stochastic control strategies as part of an apprenticeship program at a Quant firm. To further his interests in the applications of Machine Learning in Finance, he joined the MSCF program at Carnegie Mellon. After graduation, he intends to apply his multidisciplinary skills in financial mathematics, programming and data science as a Quantitative Researcher and explore the future of quantitative modeling.
