2020-2021 – Pandemic Online Events

Quantess made the move online during the pandemic, following a short hiatus for us all to find our bearings. We would like to thank all our members who continue to battle through Zoom fatigue to join us for some of the most interesting talks that we’ve hosted since we founded our group. We would also like to thank the speakers for their great contributions, and for helping keep Quantess alive during these challenging times. We hope to be back soon with in-person events. As quants we truly do have our favourite letters and hope we don’t progress to our covariance-matrix favourite Omega!

To keep up to date with upcoming events, please sign up to our newsletter here. You can also follow us on Linkedin, Twitter, and Facebook for the latest from Quantess.
