Chair of Statistical Science, Statistical Laboratory, University of Cambridge
Professor Chris Rogers is the Chair of Statistical Science in the Statistical Laboratory at the University of Cambridge. His research interests focus on financial mathematics, probability theory, stochastic analysis, statistics, and mathematical economics.
He took up his current post in September 2002, after almost nine years at the University of Bath, where he was Professor of Probability in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Before that, he had held teaching positions at Queen Mary & Westfield College (University of London), the University of Cambridge, the University College of Swansea, and the University of Warwick.
Professor Rogers works in the theory of probability and its applications, particularly in quantitative finance. His work in finance includes the potential approach to the term structure of interest rates, complete models of stochastic volatility, portfolio turnpike theorems, improved binomial pricing, robust hedging, liquidity modelling, axiomatics of valuation operators, the equity premium puzzle, duality in optimal investment/consumption, and Monte Carlo valuation of American options.
He has served the community as a past or present editor of Finance & Stochastics, Mathematical Finance, Annals of Applied Probability, Stochastic Processes and their Applications, and Stochastics. Additionally, he organised two major international programmes at the Isaac Newton Institute, Financial Mathematics in 1995, and Developments in Quantitative Finance in 2005.
Within Cambridge, he is the instigator of Cambridge Finance , and leads the Quantitative Finance Group in the Statistical Laboratory. He has participated in several Risk training courses, and has consulted for a number of clients in the financial services industry.
