Tom currently works as a consultant on Stratagem’s market making team, using reinforcement learning as a framework to build trading strategies.
Tom began working for Stratagem in 2015 at the start of his Master’s in Physics at the University of Liverpool where he received a first-class honours and departmental award for best dissertation. He has since begun a PhD in Computer Science, under the supervision of Dr. Rahul Savani, on the applications of single- and multi-agent reinforcement learning to market making and other trading problems. As part of a research support agreement Tom works part-time for Stratagem, applying his research to the development of intelligent market making strategies.
During his downtime Tom can be found reading a book, playing his guitar or learning more about the latest in machine learning.
“Stratagem is an inspirational place to work, not only because it sets out to transform the betting industry, but because it attracts intelligent people who are working at the forefront of industry and academia.”
