Market, Liquidity and Interest Rate Risk Analyst

I am currently working as a Risk analyst in Alpha Bank. My main duties are to evaluate the Interest Rate, Liquidity and Market Risk on a daily basis.


I was a member of the BIG (Bristol Interaction Group) lab of the University of Bristol and a member of the CDT in Communications. I am interested in dynamic physical visualisations of information and my main focus is to investigate the creation of an acoustic levitation interface that will allow data visualisation using levitated objects. These objects can be seen as a combined structure which can be manipulated to form new visualisations without the need of rebuilding new physical objects. 


I am a member of the GHOST (Generic and highly organic shape changing interfaces) project supported by the EC within the 7th framework programme through the FET Open scheme.
