Research Interests

My research focus recently has been on explicit numerical algorithms for nonlinear random systems of (typically) high dimension and their interplay with data science techniques. Examples of these algorithms are explicit numerical schemes for Stochastic (Partial) Differential Equations, stochastic approximation methods in the context of recursive identification of system parameters and MCMC algorithms. Any application of these methodologies to financial data is of keen interest to me.
