Native from the province of Quebec (Canada), I completed my undergraduate program in 2011 in Finance, Laval University. During that time, I had the chance to study abroad in Kansai Gaidai University (関西外大大学) in Japan. After returning in my own country, I pursed a master in Finance, Laval University and write an essay titled “VPIN Toxicity Method and Algorithmic Trading Positions and Performances”.

After graduation from my master program, I hold a position as option trader with ARB Group where I still continue to do collaboration concerning research on options and mean-reversion strategies. Finally, I completed all three levels of the CFA program in 2013.

My main interests are concerning options (especially close from expiration), market microstructure (FOREX), high frequency trading and portfolio management with non-linear products.
