From Santa Fe Institute Events Wiki


Hi! I'm Martin Gould, a PhD student in mathematics at The University of Oxford. Much of my background is in pure mathematics, so I'm particularly eager to get to grips with some applied problems and to collaborate with other researchers who have hands-on experience in this area. I'm very excited about the prospect of applying ideas from complex systems to a wide range of problems, and I would like to think about new ways to tackle certain aspects of my own research, which is currently focused on the reactions of markets to external news and on market stability.

My academic interests include:

  • Markov processes
  • Hidden Markov models
  • Queueing theory
  • Stochastic modelling, particularly zero-intelligence market models
  • Econophysics

My personal interests include:

  • Music (emission and absorption)
  • Writing
  • Art
  • Languages and travel
  • "Recreational" mathematics (whatever that might mean...)
