Allen K. Hoffmeyer

Welcome to my personal site. I earned my PhD from Georgia Institute of Technology in mathematics under the direction of Christian Houdré. I studied probability theory and stochastic processes, concentrating mostly on a class of stochastic processes named Lévy Processes. Currently, I work as a commodity derivatives trader (options) for a firm on the buy side. Previously, I worked as a quant at JP Morgan in the Emerging Markets group covering Latin America. In my personal time, I enjoy reading, playing and listening to music, and playing backgammon (to name a few).
