Marcelle von Wendland
Marcelle's research interest's cover the intersection between Economics, Financial Engineering and Semantics/Ontology on the one side and Computer Science, Digital Architecture and AI/Machine Learning on the other.
Her earlier work includes the book "Pricing, Risk, and Performance Measurement in Practice - The Building Block Approach" published by Elsevier/Academic Press and the ontology and semantic financial engineering model underpinning the European Central Banks Europe-wide CSDB platform for for financial instruments.
Marcelles current focus includes:
work on approaches to blockchain executable specifications for Smart Contracts that do not require manual translation into a low level procedural / imperative blockchain or distributed ledger language.
the application of smart contracts to international payments, financial instruments, Identity/reputation and IOT.
research on fault tolerant, highly autonomous edge computing allowing AI/Machine Learning approaches to be deployed in an IOT context where network limitation would otherwise prevent this.
Marcelle recently attended the IMF / World Bank 2018 Spring Meeting in Washington DC where she shared finding on how Blockchain / DLT can be used to overcome issues arising from the traditional correspondence bank based international payments.
