Fellow Chen Zhou Appointed Professor Mathematical Statistics and Risk Management

In his research,Chen Zhou focuses on extreme value analysis and its applications in economics and finance. The field of extreme value analysis is a modern subfield of mathematical statistics starting from 1970s. It offers statistical tools for analyzing rare events that happen with very low probability. A natural application of this field in economics and finance is regarding risk management.

Zhou joined Erasmus School of Economics in 2015, and became an associate professor in 2016. His research has been published in academic journals such as Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, Journal of Economic Theory, Journal of the Royal Statistical Society (Series B) and Annals of Applied Statistics. Zhou has an outstanding teaching record.
