Since the inception of Hermes Econometrics, Paul Gusciora assisted Maia McGehee with technical aspects of operating Hermes Econometrics. This included computers, software, networking, databases, numerical methods, and software programming. Paul collaborated with Maia McGehee to incorporate signal processing technology and stochastic processes into a proprietary econometric model. Maia McGehee used the proprietary econometric model to help decide when to move Hermes Econometrics clients assets between stock mutual funds and money-market mutual funds. Later Maia McGehee used the same econometric model to help decide when to buy and sell individual stock issues.
Following graduate school, Paul worked as a process control engineer for a Fortune 100 petrochemical company. Since then, he continued to work as a software developer and systems engineer for a privately-held software company that was acquired by a publicly-traded software company in the FT100.
Paul graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a B.S. Ch.E. He went on to earn a M.S. Ch.E. from the University of Houston, and a Ph.D. Ch.E. from the University of California Berkeley. Paul Gusciora is a registered professional chemical engineer in the State of California.
