About me and News

I'm Professor for Stochastic Processes and their Applications at the Department of Mathematics, University of Hamburg.

My research covers the theory of stochastic processes and their applications in a wide variety of fields. In particular, I have studied optimal stopping, impulse-control and worst-case problems. Applications include pricing of American options, optimal harvesting, and portfolio optimization.
I furthermore work on numerical methods, sequential statistics, applications of probabilistic methods in Banach space theory, agent-based models, stochastic analysis, pattern recognition, design of clinical trials, applied statistics, and in the popular scientific field.
