at the investment bank Tokyo-Mitsubishi International (now Mitsubishi UFJ Securitites International plc), leading a front-office group
providing pricing models and risk analysis for fixed-income,
equity and credit-related products. Dr Davis holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
from the University of California Berkeley and a DSc in Mathematics from Cambridge University. He is the author
of six books on stochastic analysis, optimisation and finance, most recently "Risk-Sensitive Investment Management" (World Scientific 2014) written with Sebastien Lleo.
He was a founding co-editor of the journal
*Mathematical Finance* (1990-93) and is currently an
