On Wednesday 18 May 2022 Dr Chen Zhou will publicly accept his appointment as Professor of Mathematical Statistics and Risk Management at Erasmus School of Economics with an inaugural lecture entitled: 'A Tale of Risk'.

Chen Zhou focuses in his research 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 analysing rare events that happen with very low probability. A natural application of this field in economics and finance is regarding risk management. His work has been published in journals in the fields of statistics, financial econometrics and finance.
