Probability, financial mathematics and actuarial science
Our researchers work across the fields of probability, financial mathematics, and actuarial science on fundamental and real-world problems.
We welcome applications for PhD study in all areas of probability, financial mathematics and actuarial science.
PhD enquiries related to this theme can be directed to Professor Korbinian Strimmer.
The work at Manchester in this theme covers a wide range of topics in the field of probability and its application areas.
The research carried out within this theme is internationally recognised for its numerous and significant contributions to the theory of random walks and Levy processes; Brownian motion and diffusion processes; Markov, branching and point processes; Dirichlet forms; stochastic analysis; stochastic calculus; stochastic differential equations; stochastic partial differential equations; optimal stopping and optimal stochastic control.
Our staff, students and postgraduate researchers have access to a fantastic range of facilities across the University.
