About me

I am part of the financial mathematics group, and I am interested in most topics within this and related areas. Lately I have been working on various aspects of optimal execution of stock positions and market micro structure models for financial markets. In the past I have worked on problems involving pricing and hedging in markets with jumps, optimal real investments under uncertainty, detection of change points and various other problems related to financial mathematics and stochastic control. I received my PhD from the University of Oslo, and spent 4 years with the financial mathematics group at King’s College London before joining LSE in 2008. I am the Programme Director for the MSc Financial Mathematics programme for 2019-20.
