Who Am I?

I am the Founder & Managing Director of Altum Intelligence and former Head of Quantitative Research Development for a large multinational bank. I currently live a nomadic lifestyle, travelling the world whilst working with hedge funds and investment institutions doing research and applications in the area of artificial intelligence and machine learning for investment and trading.

Originally Czech by nationality, but born in Germany, I spent most of my life growing up in the UK. My background is a Masters Degree in Computer Science from the University of Southampton's world renowned Electronics & Computer Science department.

In my spare time I jump out of planes, surf waves, climb mountains and generally try to enjoy life to its fullest.

I specialise in the applications of Artificial Intelligence in financial markets, managing quantitative investment opportunities, as well as AI applications in other more novel areas. I also manage a private personal portfolio of angel investments, primarily in exciting start-up companies that are pushing the limits of innovation in the AI space.
