Research Interests
My research lies within the field of stochastic analysis, with a particular emphasis on using Large Deviations Principles to solve problems arising in Mathematical Finance.  Large Deviations may be used to solve a wide array of problems concerning optimal investment and the pricing and hedging of contingent claims.  Currently, I am focusing long-horizon problems, as well as the analysis of large investors in incomplete markets.
