Research Areas

Quantitative Finance

Quantitative Finance covers all applications of quantitative methods to finance (mathematics, statistics, computational methods). The activities of the research team are in different fields:


  • Decision under risk and ambiguity.
  • Heterogeneous agents in financial economics.
  • Financial markets and asset pricing.
  • Intertemporal asset pricing.
  • Asset pricing and allocation.
  • Portfolio theory.
  • Risk measures.
  • Pension funds.
  • Performance measurement.
  • Hedge funds.
  • Risk models and model risks.
  • Financial econometrics.
  • Volatility and Risk Management.
  • Systemic Risk.
  • Management and regulation of financial risks.
  • New product design.
  • Valuation of derivative products.
  • Real options/investment under uncertainty.
  • Modeling of commodity prices
  • International Finance.
  • Performance of machine learning models.
  • Forecasting methods and scenario simulations.
  • Economics of R&D.

Data Science

Data Science addresses the boundaries between humans, computers, and real and artificial worlds: what people see, how they interact with what they see and how they analyze data and understand patterns from what they see using machine learning or statistical methods. Effective research in this domain integrates many areas of Computer Science. “Data” as a subject also introduces major economic, cultural and social challenges, from new business models to the protection of personal data. Each of the functions of a business, from finance to HR, can study these challenges from their own viewpoint. But it is relevant to develop a forum where each of these specialties can meet and compare their approach to develop transversal methods and projects, and possibly a common vision. In particular, the research team aims at becoming a vehicle for corporate partnerships with the school, where collecting and using data become central dimensions in business strategy.
