Refinitiv and BattleFin are hosting a two-part webinar series on the impact of Covid-19 on Earnings Season and Investment Strategies.
Adam Baron is the Director of Big Data Quantitative Research for Refinitiv in the StarMine Research team. His broad role covers the entire quant process: from identifying potential alternative data partners, through the necessary rigors of big data engineering and to the final stage of quantitative model research. He has explored many interesting content sets in search of alpha such as footfall derived from mobile phone GPS, credit/debit card transactions, satellite images, retail product pricing, job postings and trucking fleet vehicle telematics. These diverse data sets require a diverse set of technologies, foremost among them are: AWS (SageMaker, Glue, Athena), GCP (BigQuery, ML Engine), Azure, Hadoop/Spark, Python, R, and SQL. Prior to joining Thomson Reuters (now Refinitiv), Adam worked on Wall Street in FinTech at Morgan Stanley. During that time he pursued an MBA from NYU Stern in the evenings. This sparked a new career passion for quantitative finance that complemented his computer science background. Marriage eventually led him to the San Francisco Bay Area, which turned out to be the perfect location to learn about the latest and greatest artificial intelligence and machine learning advancements. Outside of work (and during normal times), Adam spends his mornings swimming and his evenings enjoying the performing arts.

He held the same position at StarMine, a company acquired by Refinitiv predecessor Thomson Reuters in 2008.With more than 20 years of experience conducting fundamental analysis, Tim is widely regarded as an expert helping fundamental investors apply innovative quantitative research in their investment process.
