Modelling financial markets faster than ever before

Mathematics research carried out at King's has enabled market models of financial institutions to run up to 30,000 times faster than before. These mathematical tools are the first of their kind to be applied to real world settings in finance industry.

Dr Blanka Horvath leads the research, which explores the properties of stochastic processes - mathematical objects usually defined as families of random variables, which are then used to model the dynamics of financial markets.


Rehabilitation using robots

Research on the design of robot manipulators by Professor Jian S Dai has led to the development of robotic therapy devices for the treatment of lower limb injuries.

The robotic devices provide treatment equal to or better than conventional physiotherapy, but at lower cost and more reliable consistency. They can be used to diagnose susceptibility to falls in older people, for rehabilitation for patients with Parkinson’s disease after spinal injury and stroke, and after lower limb trauma.


Mathematical modelling to support pensions policy

King's mathematicians play a key role in modelling date to inform policy decisions on pensions.

Working with the Pensions Policy Institute at King's, the researchers use risk forecasting methods established at King’s to model different scenarios and enable greater understanding of outcomes of different policies, including automatic enrolment in pensions for policymakers and industry.
