My research and teaching interests cover Financial Services (e.g. computational finance and algorithmic trading) and the Creative Industries (e.g. anthropometrics surveys using 3D Body Scanners). In Financial Services we have major and unique collaborations with Reuters, Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs and other leading investment banks, who have donated a virtual trading floor.
As Director of the Financial Computing Centre I am responsible for the UK PhD Centre for Financial Computing; a joint Doctoral Training Centre involving UCL, LSE, LBS and 15 major financial institutions.
Previously I was Pro-Provost, responsible for UCL’s International Relations with Asia, specifically South East and East Asia. This involves assisting with fund raisoing, alumni, international collaboration and liasing with business and government organisations.
