Brian Duda joined R. G. Niederhoffer Capital Management in 2002. Mr. Duda has a BS in Physics from MIT, an MS in Physics from UCLA, and a PhD in Physics from UCLA. For his doctoral research, he did research on laser-plasma interactions. After earning his degree, he became a member of the technical staff at MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory, where he did work on the jamming and spoofing of Automatic Target Recognition systems. This work led to an interest in the application of pattern recognition techniques such as neural networks as a predictor of the financial markets. Since joining R. G. Niederhoffer Capital Management in 2002, he has spearheaded the firm’s extensive research in nonlinear pattern recognition methods for constructing trading systems. Mr. Duda also directs the development of our analytical platform to test and evaluate trading and risk management strategies.
