May 6 2011 | 12:03pm ET

London-based WyeTree Asset Management, a residential mortgage specialist seeded by SkyBridge Capital, has hired Dr. Eurgene Kashdan as a quantitative analyst.

An academic with over 30 articles (as author or co-author) under his belt, Kashdan is expert in the development and implementation of fast and accurate numerical methods and their application to modeling complex physical and biological processes. His algorithms form a basis of commercial plasma simulation software, and he served as the guest editor of the journal Mathematical Biosciences and Engineering. Prior to joining WyeTree, he held a research scientist appointment at Tel Aviv University 

WyeTree Asset Management, founded in January 2007, is managed by Mike Chacos (founder and CEO) and Judith Sciamma (managing director—portfolio manager), with infrastructure support from the Australian-based Challenger, a life and funds management company with $25 billion under management. 

WyeTree launched its RRETRO hedge fund in 2008 to invest globally in assets linked to residential mortgages and residential real estate. SkyBridge Capital maintains an ongoing and close working relationship with WyeTree.
