Complexity Science

selected research

"AI Pontryagin or how artificial neural networks learn to control dynamical systems.",
Nature communications 2022

Complexity science (complex systems) studies systems and problems that are composed of many components which may interact with each other in a dynamic and non-linear way.

Financial Machine Learning

selected research

"Exploring interpretable lstm neural networks over multi-variable data",

ICML 2020

Financial Machine Learning uses methods & algorithms from statistics, machine learning and other disciplines to extract insights from financial data. In particular, I am interested in high frequency finance, volatility, portfolio optimization & large language modelling for finance.
