I earned a M.Sc. in Statistics from McMaster University in 2014 and a Ph.D. in Statistics from Western University in 2018. I am also concurrently a Postdoctoral Fellow at Wilfrid Laurier University.
I have a strong interest in interdisciplinary research has led me to apply statistical modelling and machine learning techniques to environmental science and behavioural finance.
My current research includes estimating forest fire spread using anisotropic smoothing techniques, studying the links of climate change scenarios to downstream economic effects and financial risk through direct and indirect environmental impacts, modelling the behaviours of Canadian investors under the guidance of financial advisors, and designing effective financial measures and Robo-tools that aid financial advisors in supporting their clients’ investment portfolios.
