Outside of teaching and my own research interests, I have been spinning fire for around 15 years on and off, although I don't get as much time as I used to. I also enjoy drum and bass music, films with guns and/or superheroes in and eSports. I currently spend most of my time in London.
Over 2,000 Hours Experience Teaching at Undergraduate Through to PhD level. MSc in Finance, BSc in Physics from Imperial College London.
I have been teaching for more than 10 years. I teach finance, statistics, econometrics, and a broad range of other topics from applied mathematics and statistics up to PhD level. I have an extensive familiarity with the undergraduate and postgraduate syllabuses of many UK institutions, including LSE, Durham, Bristol, UCL and Warwick.
An early and enthusiastic adopter of online teaching methods, I now teach exclusively online, believing this to be the superior teaching solution in most cases. Before teaching I worked in data analytics, and still enjoy doing some freelance data science in my spare time, using many of the same ideas I teach my students.
My teaching interests have broadened with time, from mathematical finance to a broad range of applied mathematical and statistical subjects. Among them are included:
Mathematical finance - Ito calculus, Black Scholes theory, option pricing.
Differential equations - theory and methods of solution, both analytical and numerical.
Maximum Likelihood Estimators (MLE) - theory and applications
Generalised Method of Moments (GMM) estimators, particularly of the dynamic panel variety - diff GMM, sys GMM and so on
Numerical optimisation - linear and nonlinear programming, hill climbing algorithms etc
Data Science and Machine Learning - classification algorithms, theory and implementation.
I also have extensive experience consulting on data-driven projects conducted in Stata, R, Matlab and Python, working to implement these ideas among many others.
Absolutely the best! So helpful and knowledgeable!
Great help, thank you!
Helped me with anything I needed, thank you very much!
Very satisfied - makes Stata very easy to understand
A really great experience. Dan is an excellent tutor
