See what some of our people have to say and learn what it's like to work at NumerixS Quant.

William Ko
Ph.D., Manager, Quantitative Analysis

Originally hailing from Toronto, William has always dreamed of being a university professor. However, after finishing his PhD and working as a postdoctoral researcher at two universities, he quickly realized a career in academia was not as accessible as he had hoped.

Will had to adapt his skills and target opportunities that would make use of his education, experience and passion for mathematics. Quantitative Equity Analysis felt like a natural shift for the young researcher. Will’s career change landed him at NumerixS where he spends his days solving complex mathematical problems in a collegial and academic atmosphere. The exact place where Will feels most comfortable.

When Will isn’t trying to solve some challenging conjecture or hypothesis, he can be found binging Netflix and stepping out for the occasional hike. And in the event that Will is nowhere to be found, you can expect him back in a few days. He loves a good road trip.

Tobias Huxol
Ph.D., Researcher Data Scientist

Tobias’ passion for mathematics began at an early age in a small German town near Madgeburg, where he attended a target school for Math and Sciences. Tobias was a high school academic competitor and boasts success on the national level. After graduating from high school, he left Germany to explore the world. Math and Science were his calling but he wasn’t sure yet how to translate it into a career.

Tobias completed his M.Sc in Mathematics at Oxford and a postdoc at UBC here in Vancouver. Most recently he completed his PhD in Mathematics from Warwick University.

The beautiful weather and mountain terrain drew Tobias to Vancouver. Whether it’s a day of climbing, skiing or hiking, Tobias is a certified Westcoaster.

Kyle Wamer
Ph.D., Quantitative Researcher

Kyle is from Parksville on Vancouver Island, where he spent most of his childhood riding mountain bikes and building bike jumps in his backyard. When he was sixteen, and eager for a new challenge, he decided to move to Salvador, Brazil for one year to learn Portuguese.

This experience left Kyle dreaming about where he was going to live next, and so after finishing high school in Parksville, he moved across the country to study math and physics at the University of Toronto.

While tempted by the notion of grad school abroad, Kyle decided four years was enough time away from family, and returned to the west coast to study theoretical physics at UBC. As a PhD student, he had plenty of time to learn how to rock climb and backcountry ski, and now most weekends you can find Kyle in the mountains outside of town.

With Vancouver’s proximity to both his family and these newfound hobbies, Kyle chose not to pursue any post-doc applications after his PhD. Instead, he started looking for the next challenge locally, which he found at NumerixS in the exciting area of quantitative finance.

Cheryl Slusarchuk
President and CEO

Cheryl grew up in Calgary and worked as a programmer before attending law school at McGill University in Montreal

After that, the guy who is now her husband convinced her to get married and move to Australia, where her law practice was briefly interrupted by a move to the US to help take a $1B company public. Cheryl returned to private practice in the technology area specializing in cross-border M&A. Along the way she collected a US law degree with Order of the Coif, which is a real thing in the US but sounds like ‘quaff’ — to imbibe vigorously — much to the amusement of her Australian friends.

Most recently, Cheryl’s favourite foodie and sommelier lured her away from law but not away from her passion for leading high-performance teams.

As NumerixSQuant recently opened an office in the Caymans, if not at work, you can find Cheryl exploring the island with her husband.

Cheryl and NumerixSQuant have supported Science World of BC over the past several years with both time and financial contributions including this year as Chair of the Board.

Lisa Rebernak

Lisa grew up in Montreal before coming to Vancouver to attend the University of BC where she obtained a BA in English Literature. She went on to pursue advanced studies in accounting and finance, eventually articling with KPMG and earning a CPA.CA designation.

After many years of working with some of Vancouver’s largest public companies in the forestry, mining and financial services industries, Lisa switched gears and joined a small start-up company in the space industry. It was there that she first met Cheryl, while working on the acquisition of a foreign satellite company.

When not in a global pandemic, Lisa enjoys travelling to Europe, where she immerses herself in the art and culture and pretends to be a local (until she opens her mouth). She also enjoys reading, watercolour painting, and walks and bike rides on the seawall.
