Donovan Platt, University of the Witwatersrand - South Africa
I am currently working towards an MSc in the field of Computational and Applied Mathematics at the University of the Witwatersrand, as part of the QuERI Lab research group. My current research focuses on the calibration of financial agent-based models, with particular emphasis on models representing interactions between high- and low-frequency traders.
Apart from financial applications, I also have a keen interest in the application of agent-based modeling and other modeling techniques to various systems and the study of complex systems in general.
In future work, I hope to collaborate with experts in other fields on projects relating to biological and physical systems.
