PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Zhang Research Laboratory Champaign, Illinois

Performed data analysis in MATLAB to study the data and t a mathematical model that optimally de- scribes the physical phenomena being studied in the experiment. Virginia Commonwealth University (Research Labs) Richmond, Virginia

Performed Multiple Regression Analysis on a three-factorial design matrix consisting of test data generated from numerical simulations in an e ort to develop a predictor equation that illustrates the e ect of predictor variables on a physical phenomena. Used Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) to determine the overall adequacy of the model. Published ndings in:

S.A. Tahir, M. Mital, \Numerical Investigation of laminar nano

uid developing

ow and heat transfer in a circular channel", Applied Thermal Engineering, 39, 8-14 (2012).

Developed simulation packages in Python for approximately one year. Tasks included discretizing the sur- face of interpenetrating cylinders, counting the number of hits bouncing o these cylinder surfaces and using linear algebra to solve an equation.

University of Virginia Charlottesville, Virginia

Numerical simulation to perform nearest-neighbor analysis of atoms to determine the arrangement of other atoms surrounding an atom. Similar in idea to cluster analysis in data, but a bit more complicated.

Attended 2015 high performance parallel computing bootcamp in Python. Learned to divide calculation tasks over multiple CPUs. Obtained a certi cate.

Project #1: Orderbook

Implementation of a simple order book in python using MaxHeaps in which the market clearing price is determined by the price of the buy and sell order being executed. Project #2 Event Driven Trading Engine Implementation

Implementation of a fully self-contained event-driven backtest system written in Python. The code simu- lates high-frequency trading strategies across forecasting, momentum and mean reversion domains in the equities, foreign exchange and futures markets. Derived from the book Sucessful Algorithmic Trading.
