I am teaching and doing research in mathematics at University Paris 12. I have a PhD in Dynamical Systems from the University of Orsay.My main hobbies are investing, programming, playing pool, parenting and playing backgammon.I am co-founder of a startup which helps institutions digitize and organize paper documents. We hope to complete an OCR software developed in house that will allow indexing scanned books.
Currently learning as much as possible about investing in all areas, but focused on stock picking - fundamental & technical analysis for now. Options hopefully later.
I enjoy reading SA posts & comments.
Having recently started building a long term strategy for a dividend growth portfolio, I am interested in improving and learning better ways to identify and evaluate the future great dividend stocks.
I put a lot of faith in numbers and math, but where I need improvement is avoiding this garbage in and garbage out tendency and better understanding FCF valuations and projections.

Born in humble beginnings in Castine, Maine, my family moved to California when I was 10. I received a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Hawaii in 1972, majoring in accounting and economics. Then returned to the mainland and worked for 20 years in the Silicon Valley for 3 Fortune 100 companies. I turned from the material accumulation phase of my life to start the spiritual path. Am currently retired, actively investing, and living in Grants Pass to enjoy the outdoors.
I'm working on a book called, A Girl From Castine; An Examined Life that reflects what life has taught me on the path to self-actualization. I have taken the trail versus following the paved road.
On a personal note, I enjoy reading philosophy, psychology, and literature, and spending a lot of time with Mother Nature; walking, hiking, and backpacking.
long-time laissez fair investor for retirement in mutuals, now investing small part in individual stocks. Interested in business and tech, business and tech history, transportation, energy, etc.
Over fifteen years of investing experience with both long and short-term objectives. Seeking Alpha can be a great space for intelligent and informed discussion, and a useful resource for investors. Generally consider myself a value investor and occasional trader. Preference for fundamental analysis then soft/empirical analysis both for short and long-term trading/investing. My background is in small business management, accounting, and finance.
Not a high-falutin' Pee Aich Dee economist.
Just a lowly physician tryin' to make sense of these Interesting Times.
