Welcome to my homepage. Here you can find information about my research, courses, and sample code. My current research interests span Mathematical Finance and Machine Learning.

I am a full professor of mathematical finance in the Department of Statistical Sciences. I am the former Chair for the SIAM activity group in Financial Mathematics and Engineering (SIAG/FM&E), and a Managing Editor of Quantitative Finance, an Associate Editor for the SIAM Journal on Financial Mathematics (SIFIN), Frontiers of Mathematical Finance, Journal of Dynamics and Games, the International Journal of Theoretical and Applied Finance (IJTAF),   and Journal of Risks. As well, I am a fellow of the Fields Institute for Mathematical Sciences and a member of the Oxford-Man Institute. I was a founding board member of the Commodities and Energy Markets Association and now serve on its advisory board. My research interest span stochastic control and games, reinforcement learning, machine learning, clean energy, and algorithmic trading.
