Research Interests
My research interests are in financial mathematics and applied probability, especially in the context of optimal stochastic control. My two primary areas of work concern There are numerous applications of the above models; some that I have worked on in detail include:

Financial and Insurance Mathematics

Sequential Estimation and Control Models


CRFMS Seminar

PStat Department Seminar

SIAM Activity Group on Financial Mathematics

Bachelier Finance Society
