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 20+ years of experience in software, consulting and marketing. As a researcher I gained the ability to combine a systemic view and an analytic approach. As a software architect I know 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 I learned from marketing that human group behavior can be modeled, but not predicted. All that 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.
