Professor John MoriartyProfessor of MathematicsEmail: firstname.lastname@example.orgTelephone: +44 (0)20 7882 2953Room Number: Mathematical Sciences Building, Room: MB-524Website: http://www.maths.qmul.ac.uk/people/jmoriartyProfileResearchPublicationsPublic EngagementProfileJohn Moriarty is Professor of Mathematics in the School of Mathematical Sciences, where he is also the School impact lead. He specialises in applied probability and applications in energy. Prior to joining Queen Mary, John was a Senior Lecturer in Probability and Statistics at the University of Manchester. He holds a BA in Mathematical Sciences, M.Sc. in Applied Statistics and D.Phil. in Mathematics from the University of Oxford. After the completion of his studies, he held a post-doctoral research fellowship at University College Cork. From 2013 to 2020 he held an EPSRC Early Career Research Fellowship, and from 2020-22 he holds a Research Fellowship at the Alan Turing Institute. He served as Principal Organiser for the 2019 Isaac Newton Institute programme on the Mathematics of Energy Systems.ResearchResearch Interests:My current research interests are in applied probability, real options analysis, and applications in energy.
