Dr Larbi Alili


Research Interest

  • Self-similar Markov processes and exponential functionals
  • Fluctuation theory and exit problems
  • Gaussian processes and diffusion processes
  • Stochastic processes and Finance


My supervision topics come from modern probability theory and its applications. Students interested in working in one of the topics listed below, or on a topic which suits my research interest, are encouraged to contact me. I have two Ph.D. projects to offer on:

  • On certain jumping Markov models and related option pricing problems
  • Boundary crossing problems for some Markov processes and applications
