Teaching Filip Lindskog

I have given courses in financial mathematics, portfolio theory, quantitative risk management, non-life insurance mathematics, non-life insurance pricing, time series analysis, regression analysis and probability theory. I have co-authored the book

Risk and Portfolio Analysis: Principles and Methods

which combines useful practical insights with rigorous yet elementary mathematics, and is intended for undergraduate engineering or mathematics students.


I do research in probability and statistics with emphasis on insurance and financial mathematics.
