Arne Lokka graduated from the Department of Matematics in 1997 and received his
Master degree in Mathematics in 1999, both from the University of Oslo.
He then did one year of military service at the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment.
He received a PhD in Mathematics from the University of Oslo in 2003, followed by
a post-Doctorial fellowship position at King's College London. During the years
2004 to 2008 he was a lecturer in the Department of Mathematics at King's College London.
His current research interests include stochastic analysis,
Malliavin calculus for pure jump processes, filtering,
optimal stopping problems, valuation of investment decisions,
derivative pricing and hedging in incomplete markets.
