Graduated from the Charles University with Master degree from Statistics and Bachlor degree from Financial Mathematics. Main fields of interest are Markov chains, simulation methods, and generalized linear models. Both finished theses describe stochastic processes, either theoretically or its applications. However, statistics, optimization, and finance takes significant part in these, too.

Have two years of experience as Junior Analyst in finance. Currently working as Quantitative Developer & Statistician in e-sports company. Have great experience with R (both base and tidyverse) and package develpment, minor experience with SQL, git, and VBA.

    FINANCIAL MATHEMATICS

    Bachelor program of Financial Mathematics gave me solid basis in maths and statistics for further studies of econometrics. Basic financial terms and their relationships was also learned. However, the most beneficial improvement is the ability to see problems in their complexity and solve them more efficiently.
