Traders in both financial markets and commodity markets must make educated decisions about when to trade and at what price; this project develops tools to assist with this decision-making process. Working with energy companies, financial software companies as well as companies from the banking and insurance sectors, the research team develops optimal portfolio methods that produce both the best investment decisions and the best hedging strategies for claims in general markets.

With the widespread deployment of networked sensors and cameras throughout cities, there is an incredible opportunity for improving safety and security. Surveillance networks incorporate cameras mounted on traffic lights and overpasses, mobile cameras attached to emergency vehicles, and chemical and biological sensors for detecting dangerous contaminants. Surveillance networks can comprise several thousand sensors and cameras throughout a city.
