Summary

As an lateral gifted econometrician I see a broad horizon broad horizon of cause-effect relationships. People like me are very fast learning.

Work experience

Research Assistance in international teams

University Berlin (Germany), University Lviv (Ukraine)
Jun 2011Jul 2014

I was involved in statistical empiric private research and investigations with groups of mathematicians and physicists from Germany and Ukraine, both, real life and online as well. First I was ‘apprentice’. I learned a lot. Through much study I was able to occasionally oversee the teams.

Projects of exploratory data analysis: multivariate time series, unit roots, sensitivity, cluster analysis; segmentation; programming and justification of new methods; design & statistical analysis of laboratory experiments in behavioural economics. (descriptions on demand)

trader / repair service in GER & housing agency in UKR

Video devices, pensions agency 
Nov 2003Oct 2013

I worked repairing and trading used video devices for studios in Germany and France. In Ukraine I worked for two years in the pension & accommodation agency and I I had up to 4 employees. I had to adopt to the culture of uncertainty, mistrust, dereliction of duty.

Education

M.Sc Economisc and economic Statistics

University Osnabrück
Oct 2008Aug 2014

econometrics, national economics, neuroeconomics study, higher mathematics; I worked two years hard to make the year-program in higher mathematics. I was the the first economist in Osnabrück in 7 years to pass the the higher mathematics class and my final thesis was evaluated and evaluated as excellent.

I was involved for two years in the committee for students’ participation in voluntary projects at the university.

multivariate statistics

Time series analysis of real Exchange Rates in Europa and Latin American. Economical and mathematical aspects of exchange rate investigations. How to differ a dynamic order mixed with chaos from a pure chaos? How to differ a changing structure containing a chaotic (or too chaotic) pattern from a random pattern? What is the goodness of those differentiations? Data source: price indices and nominal exchange rates in Europe and Latin America. Very mathematically. I found chaos (or too much unintelligibility) in the pattern that my forerunners saw (IMHO unjustified) as order and regularity. But I also formulated two alternative positive approaches and justified in rational & mathematical way.

Machine learning, Cluster analysis

How should they be compared and grouped in a reasonable way? It depends on what exactly and for which question is considered ’reasonable’? What concerns economics, in my opinion, the common statistical instruments/methods(originally from biology/racial anthropology, though only few econometricians know about this) are not reasonable. I justified, formulated and implemented my own visualisation methods and my own grouping method (a Ward generalisation). Experience with software engineering (existing software did not operationalised what I wanted, so I developed my own software in R). Validation, analysis of sensitivity. Here I managed to find a structure which hid from my forerunners.
