If you want to create a trading system, run a statistical analysis, develop a pricing model, build a financial GUI, or find a pattern in a sea of data, I may be the guy to help. I work primarily in MATLAB, C#, and Python. On the finance side, I'm a CAIA Charterholder, with an Economics degree and experience at McKinsey & Company. On the technical side, I hold degrees (with honors) in Engineering, and worked at a number of California tech companies through the 1990's and early 2000's. Since 2008 I've focused my work in the field of computational finance. Recent clients have included: a Swiss proprietary trading desk (Energy Futures), a Canadian hedge fund (Currencies), a US asset management firm (Equities & Bonds), a US portfolio consulting firm, a US aircraft manufacturing operation, and several others. For those clients I have developed, backtested, and deployed alpha-seeking trading strategies, automated execution algorithms, portfolio optimization models, user-friendly GUI tools. Techniques have included machine learning algorithms, classifiers, feature detectors, digital filters, matrix-based models, and concepts borrowed from detection theory and signal processing, along with various technical analysis indicators. I've worked with many financial platforms and data feeds: Deltix QuantOffice (C#), CQG API, Bloomberg, Interactive Brokers API, MultiCharts (PowerLanguage), MultiCharts.NET (C#), TradeStation (EasyLanguage), FIX (HotspotFx), ITCH (HotspotFx), etc. I can integrate other systems with MATLAB or Excel where there's an advantage. I've created C/C++ .mex files, VBA macros, Java/MATLAB integration, MATLAB/Excel integration. I've been programming in MATLAB since 1990, and can sometimes get it to do things that others can't. I can also translate or port a MATLAB application to other languages, especially Python or C#. I'm located in Southern California. For clients located within 2 hours, I can drive to meet you (sometimes same day, schedule permitting). I'm also happy to work remotely. I'm a US Citizen and have held a security clearance, though it is no longer active. The foundation of every successful project is good communication. If you have a project that needs to be done well, then let's communicate!

Well before the World Wide Web was a common phrase as it is today, before most people even owned a home computer I was programming code in a variety of languages for a variety of network related projects back when you had to put the handset of a telephone on a 300 baud modem. Trillions of lines of code under my belt and a mind that functions like a computer processing unit I not only understand today's most popular programming languages, I know how the languages themselves came to be. I am an expert who has owned, operated or worked with thousands of technology based businesses over the past 25 years. More than a programmer, I am a valuable consultant to any business wishing to build or improve any online enterprise. My work is relatively fast, accurate, functional and most importantly well constructed based on your exact needs. I do all of my own work but will bring in experts if necessary to accomplish the goals of your organization. I am an American living in Pennsylvania.

I am working in such environment which gives me opportunities to learn, innovate and evolve into a successful and responsible professional. I have 9 years of relevent education and 4 years of working experience in the area of Image Processing, Statistical Learning, Digital System Design and now doing PhD in the same field.
Mohamed anis M. Agency Contractor
I have a very good experience with Assembler, C, C++, java and C#. I have been working with C for more than 5years for desktop and embedded systems. I have a lot of experience with Microchip PIC, msp430, ARM based microcontroller and DSPs. I'm accustomed to working with CAD software such as Proteus (Isis / Ares) and Altium designer. Also I speak English and French fluently.
Thanks for taking an interest in me, let me help you get to know me better! I am an avid traveler that loves taking on new challenges and trying new things. Throughout my life I have dived into a variety of different working environments that have allowed me to experience all sorts of perspectives of the world. Excellence in the completion of my tasks is a lifestyle and I am constantly aware of the balance between quality and brevity. As an engineer, I have worked on many different projects during my tenure as a technical professional at Halliburton Sperry Drilling. In this role my tasks varied from hardware design of data collection systems from the ground up, to system and UI programming for test fixtures, to maintenance and upgrades of existing hardware and software systems. I have experience in PCB design of intrinsically safe systems as well as higher level system design. Microcontrollers are a specific passion of mine and I have specifically worked with Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and even constructed a custom board using an ATMega for a wireless data collection system. My programming background covers several different languages such as C, C++, Java, Python, HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, LabVIEW, and with a strong grasp of the logic behind the code I am very comfortable with any language that I may not have used as extensively in the past. User Interface design was a large part of my role at Halliburton and I am experienced in make an interface that is both intuitive and functional for users. As a writer, I have always strived to convey relevant information in both an efficient and eloquent manor. My travels have helped me discover new methods of evoking the readers emotions and I always strive to improve my writing skills! I am more than able to write technical documents, creative articles, how-to's, and anything in between! I hope I have given you a fantastic impression of my skills and if you have any questions for me don't be afraid to ask! I am a hard working friendly guy that wants to give you the best that I can create for any project. Thanks for your consideration and I look forward to assisting you with all of your needs!
I am deeply interested in Artificial Intelligence and Neural Networks. I work well with the Java programming language, though I could adapt to other object-oriented and server-scripting languages. I also do data mining and web scraping projects, image recognition and processing and signal-filtering applications. I am a fan of embedded systems, wearable technology and green computing.
I graduated with honors from Southern Polytechnic State University with a bachelor's degree in Mechatronics Engineering. I was one of the thirteen students in the first graduating class from the school. I have become a very proficient control systems engineer over the years, mainly working with clients in the water and waste water treatment and distribution industry. Over this time, I have gained profound experience using all of the devices available from most of the big name PLC and SCADA software companies, such as Allen-Bradley, Schneider Electric, Automation Direct, Wonderware, Maple Systems, etc. I have also gained experience in a variety of other areas, including performing electrical wiring, submitting design documents, managing projects, designing CAD drawings, configuring applications, designing and troubleshooting network configurations,creating HMI's, and much more. During my spare time, I try to keep in touch with my Mechatronics roots and work on small scale robotics or embedded projects. To sum it all up, I'm basically just one of those guys who was born to be an engineer. I'm extremely technical and I love to tackle any idea or issue.
