Numerical analysis, stochastic control and their applications in mathematical finance:
I am a second-year DPhil student in Mathematical and Computational Finance Group, supervised by Prof. Christoph Reisinger. My research focuses on numerically solving stochastic hybrid control problems arsing from mathematical finance. I am interested in the wellposedness of the fully nonlinear PDEs associated with these control problems, the regularity of the solutions, and efficient numerical schemes for these problems. Recently I am working on combining the classical PDE approach with the modern deep learning methodology to solve such problems in a high-dimensional setting.
