I'm a Professor Emeritus of Neurology and an epidemiologist. I like to apply my epidemiological view of the macro world to investing. I recently retired early and now continue my intellectual pursuits through private investing. Currently my investments are made using a strategy that focusses on countries and their attributes. It's a fun and, so far, lucrative way to invest.
Daily trader of the U.S. stock market. Favorite trades are with Apple, Google, Gold, and Priceline using a variety of option spreads.

I walked away from a 25 year career as an electrical engineer designing ICs to trade full time. I have a MSEE degree and was a PHD grad student before leaving to join a networking start-up. My trading has surpassed my engineering career, and is now my primary focus.
