My name is Hair Parra (Jair). I am currently pursuing a MSc. in Financial Engineering at HEC Montreal, after having worked as a data scientist at Cisco Systems (2020-2023) . I graduated from McGill University with a major in Computer Science and a double minor in Statistics and Linguistics. My interest lies in machine learning, statistics, NLP, and now quantitative finance (asset management, risk management & derivatives pricing), . I am technical article writer, and a lifelong learner. I'm also a casual fingerstyle guitarist, singer, dancer and a proud polyglot!
