Quantitative Researcher / Data Scientist / Systematic Trader

Some of my recent projects:

For over a decade, one person held the belief that systematic trading could be made more lucrative, safer, and more innovative. Applying math, engineering, and computer science skills to solve the market. Financial markets are getting more complex, driven by competitive pressure. This makes the Quant-work interesting and pushes to improve skills in finding unexpected solutions.

Dmitry produced creative solutions through the latest advancements in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to deal with the rising complexity of practical financial market challenges. That is why major financial companies hired Dmitry to find priceless answers and bring the solutions business needed.
