I am an IVADO professor in the Department of Decision Sciences at HEC Montréal. Trained in quantitative methods for finance, I have a keen interest in asset allocation, risk management, and text-mining. In 2018, the Swiss Risk Association awarded me “Swiss risk manager of the year”. I am a big fan of open-source coding and co-authored several R packages such as AdMit, bayesGARCH, DEoptim, GAS, MSGARCH, RiskPortfolios, PeerPerformance, and sentometrics. I recently developed the COVID19 Data Hub project. I am also a founding member of the Sentometrics organization, a member of Fin-ML and Quantact, and an instructor at DataCamp. When I’m not coding, I play a foodie in downtown Montréal.
