Roles and responsibilities
I teach modules related to derivative pricing, ranging from introductory level courses to undergraduates to advanced level postgraduate modules. I am course director for Heriot-Watt’s unique undergraduate degree in Financial Mathematics and co-ordinate the joint Heriot-Watt/University of Edinburgh Masters degree.
Since the Credit Crisis I have spent time coordinating the response of the mathematics community, primarily to policy makers, and have sent or drafted communications to the Chief Scientific Advisor tot the Government, the (then) Science Minister, the FSA, the Treasury Select Committee, the Royal Society as well as journalists.
