Financial Engineer: Trade Strategy Innovation

My passion is authoring new strategies from the ground up in a collaborative effort with specialists on trade desks or with individual traders. My focus is twofold: execution algorithms and research. I studied Financial Math (MSc) at University of Chicago and Math (BA) at Oberlin College. These two focal points play out in many different ways, including coaching manual traders in discipline and risk management. I have found great traction working with clients in building out trade strategies and business planning for wealth management or trading firms. Pure research, project management, execution code for automation, and helping traders form concise hypotheses about what they are seeing in their markets. I would be an excellent addition to existing work flows as a leadership/management intermediary between a technical team and end users like traders and risk managers. Languages and Software: Python, NinjaTrader8 (C#), Kraken Python API, Python's Dash Expert in Trading Technologies Algo Design Lab (ADL). ---------------------------------------------- Types of projects I have been a part of: -- Improve an existing discretionary trade, then convert part of the trade into gray-box execution algorithms. Example: Built algos that manage complex execution logic once a trader launches into a given product and selects parameter values. Used during narrow time windows watching for specific phenomena. For example: detecting certain order flow patterns during the first 5 seconds of the German DAX future open. -- Make a spreader algo agnostic to exchange and spread type. Example: Built a spreader to handle for the order type differences between CME, CBOT, NYMEX, COMEX, EUREX, ICEUS, ICELIFFE. Also, allowed for the code to be usable for exchange-native spreads (calendar spreads and inter-commodity spreads) and for spreads built by an end user. -- Additional full examples are under Other Experiences. ---------------------------------------------- Hourly fee listed is for larger projects. Hourly fee for smaller projects will be higher.
