I completed MSc in Financial Mathematics with distinction from University of Sussex, UK in September 2015. My dissertation topic was, “Black-Scholes-Merton Model and Valuation of Exotic Options”, where I created variants of plain vanilla and path dependent options and priced them with different methods. Besides, I introduced an extension to the path dependent Asian option which further reduces the volatility of stock prices risk.
In my MSc, we also studied Econometrics, Stochastic Processes and Financial Portfolio Analysis. My research interest lies in highly applicable Stochastic Differential Equations and their applications in Finance.
My early education is in Pakistan where I was graduated in Mathematics with Statistics and Physics from Federal Urdu University, Karachi. I passed federal public service commission’s competitive examination for lecturer in Mathematics and worked for more than three years in FG College Jhelum as lecturer in Mathematics, and then went to UK in the University of Sussex. Currently I am working for SHEIR, and we are working on a project to provide a sustainable platform to educated people in Pakistan (especially women) to earn while working from their homes.
Further to my MSc in Financial Mathematics from Sussex, doing a PhD in the "Stochastic and Finance" would be an undoubtedly outstanding achievement for me.
