|Qualifications||BSc. Actuarial Science, BSc. Hons. Mathematical Statistics, MSc. Mathematical Statistics|
|Short Bio||In addition to being a lecturer, I am in the final stages of a PhD in Actuarial Science at the University of Pretoria. I have an interest in solving various real-life problems requiring a solid background in Mathematics, Probability and Statistics. Over the years, I have acquired strong analytical skills through a combination of Actuarial Science and Mathematical Statistics degrees. I find the application of Mathematics, Statistics and Probability to practical problems in finance and insurance particularly interesting. My current research is based on the propagation of risk across networks of financial institutions, especially banks and insurance companies, and the development of risk measures that model or predict the incidence of systemic risk or contagion in such systems.
In general, my current interests centre around the use of quantitative tools of Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics to model-building, model testing, and more generally the analysis and interpretation of data. Monte Carlo simulations particularly peak my interest. Subjects I teach in the university are Actuarial Statistics, Industrial Statistics, and Elementary Statistics.
