Summary

Rama CONT is Professor of Mathematics and Chair of Mathematical Finance at the University of Oxford and Visiting professor at the Department of Mathematics, Imperial College London.

Rama Cont's research focuses on stochastic analysis, stochastic processes and mathematical modeling in finance, in particular the modeling of extreme market risks and systemic risk. He has co-authored more than 70 research publications, including the widely cited monograph Financial Modelling with Jump Processes (2003).

From 2014 to 2018, he served as founding director of the CFM-Imperial Institute of Quantitative Finance and co-Director of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Financial Analytics and Computing. He served as Editor-in-Chief of a major reference work, the Encyclopedia of Quantitative Finance (Wiley 2010) and Chair of the SIAM Activity Group on Financial Mathematics and Financial Engineering (2010-2012).

Prof. Cont was awarded the Louis Bachelier Prize  by the French Academy of Sciences in 2010 for his research on mathematical modeling in finance and the Royal Society Award for Excellence in Interdisciplinary Research in 2017. He was elected Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) in 2017 for his 'contributions to stochastic analysis and mathematical modeling in finance.'
