Dore joined as a trainee and was promoted to junior trader in 2018. He was recently chosen to lead the US corn trading strategy, overseeing physical commodity flows of over $500mm per annum to destinations like China, Mexico and Saudi Arabia, while guiding the Company’s futures positions. Dore is based out of New York City and works out of the North American headquarters in Wilton, Connecticut. 

This profile was current as of 2017, when he was part of the on-campus Kellogg community.

I have worked with Professor Desch for the past two years on the effect of academics on policymakers, but I am currently looking to expand my horizons into researching Arab literature with Professor Guo.

My interest in Arab literature was sparked by a Arab poetry class I took while abroad in Amman, Jordan, but I have always been interested by the international security work that Professor Desch focuses on. I am also involved in the Jubilee Initiative for Financial Inclusion, a nonprofit community financial services provider founded and run by Notre Dame students in order to combat predatory lending practices in our South Bend community.
