Gwendolyn S. and Colbert I. King Endowed Chair Lecture Series
(Lecture/Discussion)

Dr. Piotr Karasinski, pioneering quantitative analyst best known for the Black-Karasinski short rate model which he co-developed with the late Fischer Black, will deliver the lecture, "From Physics to Finance." Dr. Karasinski will discuss how his studies in physics accidentally led him to Wall Street and Goldman Sachs. He will also address the 2008 financial system meltdown, the relationship between physics and finance, the role of mathematical models, ways to make the financial system safer, and his work with Fischer Black.

The Office of Residence Life is offering two RSVP points per lecture to reward students who attend.
