About Sam

About Sam
After receiving my BA in mathematics at New York University, I worked as an actuarial analyst at Mercer LLC in New York and passed the first two actuarial exams (probability and financial math). After a year, I then began a math Ph.D. program at UC Irvine intending to specialize in probability. I have since left UC Irvine with my MS in mathematics and will soon be interning at a startup that uses machine learning to predict stock prices.
