I am a quantiative analyst and developer with special interests in econometrics, data analysis and modelling in Financial Markets and Trading, News and Social Networks. I have a strong expertise in statistical programming using the open source software R.
I obtained my PhD in 2014 on the topic of truncation, a particular case of data selection, in Finance and Econometrics at the University of Basel, supervised by Prof Dr Heinz Zimmermann and Prof Dr Christian Kleiber.
Currently, I am heading the Product Management department at financial.com in Munich, where my team is responsible for the development of product strategies in the financial sector. We heavily use R and Shiny for rapid prototyping and sketching of new ideas.
I like the collaboration in multinational research teams and I am always looking for interesting projects and contacts in data science and R. Please contact me via email or connect me on LinkedIn, XING or Twitter.
- I am supporting the Förderverein Kindertagesstätte Südl. Auffahrtsallee München and the Förderverein Max-Steenbeck-Gymnasium Cottbus. Both do fundraising for Kindergarden and school children.
