Prof. Rene Carmona will be visiting us and deliver a Boeing Distinguished Colloquia on next Thursday, February 2nd. Dr. Carmona is a leading scholar in mathematical finance! His research interests not only cover a very very wide range of areas in mathematical finance but also include probability, gaming theory, signal analysis, and of course PDE and optimization!
Due to a busy schedule, Dr. Carmona will only be with us on Feb. 2nd, so don’t let this one of a kind opportunity to slip away.
Professors and postdocs please sign up “Individual Meeting” ASAP since I am pretty sure those spots will be filled up quickly. Please sign up at the following public file:
ACT FAST EVERYONE!!!
Below is a brief CV of Dr. Carmona.
I highly suggest you take a closer look at his website:
Professor Rene Carmona is the Paul M. Wythes ’55 Professor of Engineering and Finance in the department of Operations Research and Financial Engineering (ORFE) at Princeton University. He is Chair of ORFE, an associate member of the Department of Mathematics, a member of the Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics, and Director of Graduate Studies of the Bendheim Center for Finance at Princeton.
Dr. Carmona’s research interests include, but certainly not limited to, stochastic analysis, financial mathematics, and signal/image analysis. He has published over one hundred articles and eight books, and edited seven books in probability, statistics, and financial mathematics. He was elected Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics in 1984 and of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) in 2009. He is the founding chair of the SIAM Activity Group on Financial Mathematics and Engineering, the founding editor of the Electronic Journal & Communications in Probability and the SIAM Journal on Financial Mathematics. He is on the editorial board of several peer-reviewed journals and book series and on the scientific board of several institutes (e.g. Oxford Man Institute, Institute of Mathematics and Applications). Dr. Carmona developed computer programs for teaching and research. He has worked on the commodity and energy markets, and he is recognized worldwide as a leading researcher and consultant in this area. Recently, he organized conferences and summer schools on Energy Risk, the Future of the Electricity Markets, Emissions Regulations, and high frequency trading, topics on which he designed and taught courses and tutorials.
Dr. Carmona received his These d’Etat in Probability from the University of Marseille in June 1977. Before joining Princeton in 1995, Dr. Carmona was an Assistant Professor from 1981 to 1983, an Associate Professor from 1983 to 1984, and a full Professor since 1984 at the University of California at Irvine.
