Finance

Area dedicated to education and career path of my financial alter ego.

Education

I'm currently crafting a PhD in Finance at the Faculty of Economics in Ljubljana. I hold both a BSc and MSc in Financial Mathematics from Faculty of Mathematics and Physics in Ljubljana, with a BSc in a field of Game Theory and MSc in Actuarial Mathematics. I completed my studies in time despite being a professional athlete at the time.

Work

I started my career in Actuary department, however I soon shifted to Financial markets, currently leading analytics within Treasury & ALM department at Bitstamp, the longest running crypto exchange.

Blockchain

I gained interest in Blockchain Technology back in 2016. I was involved in two Blockchain project as a Crypto Economist and Financial Analyst. I cofounded several crypto projects and I am heavily involved in Defi & Web 3.0.

Programming

In order to be able to automatize tasks and analize markets properly I mastered Microsoft Excel and VBA. Moreover, I developed several applications in R and Python. I'm well-versed in Latex and I have knowledge in Matlab, Stata and Mathematica, as well.
