I have worked as a software engineer at Google and currently work as a research software development engineer at Microsoft Research. I am an online part-time student in the UW Applied Mathematics Department’s Masters in Computational Finance and Risk Management. My objective for enrolling in this program is to prepare myself for the long-term goal of pursuing a career in quantitative finance. I am very appreciative of the excellent mode of teaching and support always given in the program. I had taken an online course at another top university where the online student group was treated as a stepchild throughout. In this UW online program the instruction and help are simply the best.
