I have been a Professor of Quantitative Methods in Management (focusing mainly on mathematical finance and mathematical economics) at the Turku School of Economics (University of Turku) since 2001. My educational and professional background is as follows: I originally studied economics and applied mathematics at  University of Turku (UTU) for 1987-1988. For 1989-1994 I worked at the Department of Economics and obtained my first PhD in Economics in 1994. After that I moved to the Department of Mathematics and worked there for 1995-2000. During that period I completed my second PhD in Applied Mathematics in 1997.
