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

Robots that understand, interpret, and adapt to human behaviour used to be the stuff of science fiction. Dr Oya Celiktutan is leading work in the King’s Centre for Robotics Research in the Department of Engineering looking at how robots can learn from observing how humans relate to each other and learn, rather than simply imitating behaviour, to sense and respond to particular needs.

As part of this research, Oya has been working with Toyota which is developing a Human Support Robot (HSR). In the first trial of its kind, in 2021, the HSR provided by Toyota moved into the family home of Anthony Walsh, who had been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in May of that year.

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.
