Jun Maeda

I finished my studies in 2018. I worked on research under the supervision of Professor Saul D. Jacka.

My main interest lies in the field of financial mathematics, focusing on financial modelings from traders' perspectives.

I also have interests in:

(nonlinear) partial differential equations, stochastic control, differential geometry, and numerical analysis.

I obtained my master's degree from the Graduate School of Informatics at Kyoto University.
