Andreas Lagerås

Docent in Mathematical Statistics

Picture of Andreas


Currently I mostly do research in financial and actuarial mathematics, and probability theory in general. I have previously worked on modelling biological processes. At the moment I also work for AFA Insurance on strategic asset allocation, and asset and liability management. You can find some of my presentations on the latter subject below.


I supervised Patrik Andersson who defended his doctoral thesis 26 August 2011.
