Jun Maeda

I am in the final year (4th year) of my PhD studies, working 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.
