What I do?

I live a "Never Free - Never Busy" life.

Busy on weekdays, busier on weekends. Somehow, I always have more than enough things to do/read/write/travel/talk/listen/watch...

But a the same time, I am always available if something is interesting enough!

Once someone special asked me - "Busy?" and I replied honestly - "I'm always busy, but never for you."

Anyways, Professionally - I work for a Wall street firm. Risk, Quant, and Research are keywords that define what I do.

In the past, I worked as a visiting faculty teaching Finance to MBA students [hobby!] at Symbiosis, Pune. It was an excellent experience in many ways. I also teach Machine Learning for Finance and Econometrics to masters students at a couple of Business Schools in New York City.

...at one point in time, I also worked on developing models for natural gas transportation in international markets, Bayesian models, organization modeling, pedestrian simulation, network flow problems, and things like that related mostly to maths, stats, and computer science. Most of it was during my two memorable trips to Switzerland and working with two Profs at IIM Bangalore. I also worked (volunteer) with a Microfinance firm for three months.

If any of it sounds interesting to you or something is in your mind, which you may like to share. Feel free to dump it at aojha[AT]aojha.in.
