I am a member of the stochastic analysis group and the mathematical and computational finance group

Research Interests

My research interests are in probability, stochastic processes, financial mathematics and fractals. In particular:

  • Financial Mathematics: Pricing American style options, credit and correlated default, electricity price modelling and swing options, stochastic partial differential equations models.
  • Fractals: Diffusion processes on fractals, spectral problems for fractal domains, fractal models for soil, geometry of random fractals.
  • Rough paths and Levy area.
  • Branching processes, general branching processes, branching random walk, epidemics.
  • Particle systems and random matrices.
  • Recent publications and preprints

    PhD Students

    Please note I do not have places for internships in mathematical finance.

    Teaching

    I teach on the full time MSc course in Mathematical and Computational Finance and also on the part time MSc in Mathematical Finance.

    Journals

    I am co-editor in chief (with Christoph Reisinger) of Applied Mathematical Finance

    I am an associate editor for

  • Acta Applicandae Mathematicae
  • Stochastic Processes and their Applications
  • Journal of Fractal Geometry
