Profile: Alexander Munk
PhD candidate, mathematics
I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Michigan. My thesis research, supervised by Professor Erhan Bayraktar, has covered a diverse range of financial mathematics problems.
Recently, we began studying parimutuel wagering, a betting system used in finance, prediction markets, lotteries, and sports gambling. Applications of our work in the context of horse racing were featured in media outlets including The Conversation.
During my upcoming summer internship at an investment bank, I look forward to making a valuable contribution while growing professionally.
