“Many ideas grow better when transplanted into another mind than in the one where they sprang up.”

– Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809-1894)

Research visit at unsw

My recent two-week visit to the UNSW School of Risk & Actuarial Studies, where I was honored as a ‘rising star’, was a remarkable blend of academic collaboration and research exploration. Highlights included presenting my research at a seminar, speaking at the 31st Colloquium on Pensions and Retirement Research, research meetings with faculty members and PhD students, and initiating two impactful research projects. This laid the ground for ongoing collaboration with the School of Risk & Actuarial Studies.


Talks at INFORMS Applied Probability, IME and AFRIC 2023


During June and July of 2023, I had the distinct opportunity to present my research work, titled “Gaussian Process-Based Mortality Monitoring using Cumulative Sum Procedures,” at several prestigious conferences. These included the INFORMS Applied Probability Conference in Nancy, France; the IME Congress in Edinburgh, UK; and the inaugural AFRIC Congress in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. Each event provided a valuable platform for engaging discussions and knowledge exchange, and it was particularly rewarding to reconnect with colleagues from around the globe in the post-Covid-19 period.

Research seminar at the University of Waterloo

I recently had the pleasure of presenting my paper, “Insurance Valuation: A Two-Step Generalized Regression Approach,” at a research seminar hosted by the University of Waterloo. The event was an excellent occasion for intellectual exchange and dialogue. Following the seminar, I enjoyed a delightful dinner with esteemed colleagues Hong Li from the University of Guelph and Lisa Gao from the University of Waterloo, as captured in the enclosed photo.
