Professor Howison’s research interests in physical applied mathematics include applications of differential equations, free and moving boundary problems in heat and mass transfer, and fluid dynamics. In mathematical finance, his work focuses on derivatives pricing, asymptotic methods, models in energy markets and models for optimal production of exhaustible resources. His most recent interest encompasses the study of models using networks, and community detection in networks.
