    IEMS Seminar: Open Problems In Contract Theory

    Department of Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences

    11:00 AM M228, Technological Institute

    EVENT DETAILS

    Dylan Possamaï
    Columbia University

    Abstract: This talk will be the occasion to present recent progresses made on the treatment of continuous time contract theory, and more importantly to highlight several problems and areas where a general theory is still lacking. This includes notable adverse selection problems, time-inconsistent Agents, and general equilibrium issues between many Principals and many Agents. I will put forward the main difficulties encountered as well as possible approaches to tackle them.

    Biography: Dylan Possamaï’s research interests span several areas of applied mathematics, including optimization and stochastic control, backward stochastic differential equations, and stochastic analysis, in mathematical finance and economics. Applications areas for his work include robust finance, contract theory, electricity markets, and general incentives problems in economics. Prior to joining Columbia Engineering in 2017, Possamaï was a tenured assistant professor at Université Paris Dauphine in France from 2012 to 2016. He earned his PhD in 2011 from École Polytechnique, France; his MS in 2009, from UPMC Sorbonne Universités, and his BS in 2009 from École Polytechnique. He received the best young research in finance and insurance award of the Europlace Institute of Finance in 2017.
