My name is Timothy Vasilyev and I'm a student at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor pursuing a major in finance and a minor in mathematics. During the summer of 2017, I suffered a serious knee injury that ended my dreams of playing college basketball; consequently, I shifted my focus from basketball to getting into some of the top institutions in the country. This is something my parents, who are both immigrants with PHD's, always wanted for me and thus, I spent the rest of the summer after my surgery self-studying for the SAT and ultimately improved my score by 200 points (scoring in the 99th percentile for Math). I also succeeded at getting into my dream school, the University of Michigan.
Outside of school/academics, I currently am working for an investment bank called Eaton Square based in San Francisco while taking a an academic gap year. I primarily focus on the CloudTech, Visual Computing Tech, and MedTech industries and am specifically working on merger & acquisition and private placement transactions within those spaces. I also have experience working in investment management, having interned at a firm called Cetera Investors, and have also dipped my toes into the start-up world having interned at a solar energy company called Tau Science.
