About Me

Hi! I am Dialid,

I was born in Mexico where I studied mathematics. I moved to the UK to do a PhD in Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Warwick. After finishing my studies, I came to London to pursue a career as a Quantitative Analyst (a.k.a. quant). Currently, I work at an investment bank.

I created this website as a digital notebook to keep and share my notes on various technical topics (mainly related to mathematics, programming, and finance) as well as my experience working as a quant. As you can see, my site has no ads, no tracking, no sponsored posts, and no paywall. My only motivation is to share some of what I have learned with anybody who is interested.

I love creating data visualisations as a tool to communicate complex ideas as well as provide powerful insights from data. This is why you will see lots of plots in this site.
