Research interests/expertise

I am interested in research that focuses on applying cutting-edge machine learning, statistical, actuarial (including mortality and longevity modelling) techniques in finance, risk and insurance for the development of holistic risk based financial security systems. I am also interested in applying mathematical economics in formulating policies in pensions and the extent to which these issues are relevant to wider areas such as social policy.
