Physics Colloquium

"Life after Physics: A look back on 20 years in Finance"

Presented by Andreas Gocksch

Tuesday, August 11, 2015, 3:30 pm — Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

After 10 years of research in High Energy Theory this BNL graduate ('83-'85 and '88-'93) followed the call of Wall Street. In my talk I reflect on over 20 years in the financial industry with an emphasis on highlighting possible career choices for young people that might one day be faced with searching for a "life after Physics". Along the way I also hope to leave the audience with an understanding of some basic facts about Finance and an appreciation for the utility of the physicist's toolkit in the "real world". *This talk may be of especial interest to students.
