Damián Avila

I'm a quantitative finance analyst, but also a biochemistry (currently into a PhD programm in biological science) from UNLP, Buenos Aires, Argentina. I do my financial time series analysis in Python (with some additional pythonic batteries). I like math, statistics and econometrics, but also immunology (my biological thesis is under this scope), economy, literature and politics. I'm TA in Immunology at UNLP and I teach biostatistics at the Colegio de Bioquímicos - Colegio Zonal XII - Buenos Aires. I'm a member of Python Argentina (PyAr) [1] and Quantitative Finance Club (QFClub) [2]. I have presented a talk in the last Python Conference in Argentina (PyConAr 2011) [3 - 4].
