Research Topics

The Center faculty are highly research-active, publishing many articles each year. They also regularly recruit new graduate students to their groups. Among  themes that are presently investigated are: Mean Field Games for Systemic Risk; Stochastic Portfolio Theory; Gaussian Process Regression for Portfolio Risk Management; Limit Order Book modeling; Contagion in Random Financial Networks; Stochastic Volatility models;  Monte Carlo methods for Stochastic Control; Dynamic Cournot Models for Energy Markets; Stochastic Games.
