My research concerns forward-backward stochastic differential equations (FBSDEs). These are a class of systems that model the random evolution of two processes, one evolving forward in time and the other backwards.  In particular, I am interested in how these equations can be used as models for price evolution in carbon markets, such as the EU ETS. Carbon markets are currently being implemented in several regions worldwide and are one of the principal ways in which governments can achieve the emissions reductions set out in the Kyoto Protocol.
