Dr. Athanasios Pantelous

Associate Director of Quantitative Finance and Risk Analysis

Dr. Pantelous is a Reader at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, at the University of Liverpool, UK, and he is also affiliated with the Center for Technology and Systems Management as the Associate Director of Quantitative Finance and Risk Analysis.

He holds two PhDs: the first one, in Statistics (Actuarial Science) from Athens University of Economics and Business, Greece, and the second one, in Mathematical Modelling and Control Theory (Mathematical Engineering) from City, University of London, United Kingdom.

His primary research interest focuses on applied mathematics and mathematical modelling under risk and uncertainty with an emphasis on actuarial science, quantitative finance, computational mathematics, applied stochastic analysis, systems and control theory, and stochastic dynamics. His theoretical developments have often found diverse applications in actuarial science, engineering, as well as economics and finance.

Dr. Pantelous has published more than 140 technical papers in peer-reviewed International Journals and Conference Proceedings. He has served in the scientific and/or organizing committees of several international technical conferences, and has co-founded and chaired the Quantitative Finance and Risk Analysis (QFRA) symposium series. He is currently an Associate Editor of the ASCE-ASME J. of Risk and Uncertainty in Engineering Systems.

He co-lead, as Deputy-Director and co-Investigator, the EPSRC and ESRC Center for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Quantification and Management of Risk & Uncertainty in Complex Systems & Environments (2014-2023). This research and training center has attracted a total funding volume of £21m and involves more than 36 industrial and academic partners from around the globe.

Further, he is certified at the level of Middle Manager (Finance/Insurance) from the Hellenic Institute of Insurance Studies (H.I.I.S.).
