Author of Quantitative Risk & Value at Seeking Alpha and two 4-star books at Harriman House, designer of the market risk indicator MTS10. I hold a PhD in computer science, an MSc in software engineering and an MSc in civil engineering. I have 25+ years of experience in IT, consulting and marketing. In academic research I gained the ability to combine a systemic view and an analytic approach. In the software industry I learned that simplicity is a factor of robustness. As a consultant I have been involved in the activity of companies and agencies in various sectors and countries. And marketing taught me that human group behavior can be modeled, but not predicted. This experience has fueled my quantitative research, analysis and portfolio strategies since 2010. I am not a registered investment advisor. My writings are for informational purposes, not investment advice.
