My name is Michael Klyachman and I am a 19 year old aspiring mathematician. I’m a student at the University of Chicago majoring in Math and Russian, and you can email me at uchicago@klyachman.edu (flip as needed)

I come from a pure mathematics background, and have expeirnece in Algebraic Geometry and Algebraic Topology. I’ve recently been looking into applying my mathematical knoweldge to financial markets, and am actively looking for opportunities in Quantitative Trading and Quant Research. Outside of mathematics I’m interested in running, yellow pigs, and public transit.

Motivation/personal synopsys

In my mathematical studies, I’ve come across a lot of interesting concepts. It’s always interesting to me to see how interdisciplinary mathematics can be- applications of topological methods in algebraic geometry (or vice versa) always lead to a richer body of knowledge. Looking at specifically intersections of different fields has allowed me to be creative with my approach to problems, and has allowed me to develop very good intuition specifically with regards to decontructing sub-problems.

I’ve found that the most personally rewarding questions are answered when high-level concepts are able to crack real questions because of the specific process of problem-solving.

Mathematical Interests


My blog, which will be filled with mathematical and nonmathematical thoughts alike, is forthcoming.
