The masters students were honored to have Sebastián Ceria of Axioma lead the weekly seminar on Tuesday, February 5th. Dr. Ceria, who received his PhD in optimization, founded Axioma in 1998 upon his departure from academia. The firm specializes in the development of software applications geared towards robust portfolio optimization and trading efficiency and now services many of the country’s most prominent asset managers. Dr. Ceria illustrated for the students some of the more common problems faced by money managers today and the processes he employs to solve them.–CASEY O’MEARA ‘08
