Areas of expertise My primary area of expertise is computer systems for trading in financial markets. In 1996 I designed an automated trading system that is adaptive (learns from experience); in 2001 a team of researchers at IBM showed that my algorithm beats human traders. My research has concentrated on automated trading systems since 1996.

More generally, I can comment on artificial intelligence, cognitive science, ultra-large-scale socio-technical systems, complex systems, and complexity science.
