Welcome!

I am a Senior Lecturer with the School of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia. I am also the Director of the Master of Financial Mathematics program.

I serve on the Editorial Boards of the following journals: Research interests
  • Computational finance
  • Scientific computing, numerical methods, analysis and computation
  • High-performance computing and parallel computation (strong focus on Graphics Processing Units (GPUs))
More information about my research can be found at my SSRN author page .
