Frederic Utzet

Full professor at UAB
Research area: Probability

PhD in Mathematics obtained at UB (1985)


I read my PhD in 1985 on the topic of Martingales with multidimensional parameter; my advisor was prof. David Nualart (now at Kansas University). I was associate professor at Universitat of Barcelona (1986-1993) and from 1993 I am professor at the Department of Mathematics of the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona. Besides the topic of multidimentsional processes, I worked in Asymptotic statistics, Survival Analysis, Malliavin Calculus, Lévy processes, Mathematical Finance and Extreme value theory. I also colaborated with a applied scientists (mainly researchers in Biological sicences) in very applied problems.
