Fernando C. Barbi
I am a researcher at the CEF-SBS, the Center for Entrepreneurial Finance at the SBS Swiss Business School in Zurich, and a product manager developing tools for Private Equity investors.
As a data scientist I break codes hidden in large amounts of data. I decode data looking for patterns to spot causality and trends. I enjoy telling the story behind the numbers, to make them tell us their secrets, either by putting them in context or by exposing their lies, shining light on the truth.
I use Econometrics and Machine Learning tools to research on Blockchain Kryptoeconomics and Macro-Finance models.
I got a Doctorate from the São Paulo School of Economics (FGV) researching Monetary Policy, Asset Pricing and Financial Risk Management.

ARDL is a R package to estimate Auto-Regressive Distributed Lag models. I am using this in Macroeconomic models.
Ip2as is a Pyhon 2.7 package to analyze ipv4 traffic and classify it according to their origin network, as indicated by their ASN (Autonomous System Number). This is networking engineering stuff from a previous life.
