My research focuses on the intersection of statistical machine learning and big data econometrics, with a particular interest in the high-dimensional nonlinear time-series analysis and their applications in macroeconomic/financial forecasting and estimation of big financial networks. I received my Ph.D. (2017) from the London School of Economics and Political Science, Department of Statistics.
I also work occasionally as a consultant for financial firms and governmental organizations for all business related to pattern recognition and knowledge discovery, especially computer modeling and forecasting. I have been in the industry for a few years, working as a trader and portfolio strategist, and I developed different algorithmic trading strategies.
