Albert Cohen
Actuarial Program Coordinator

E-mail: achoen@stt.msu.edu

Albert Cohen received his Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University in 2007 under the supervision of David Kinderlehrer. Cohen's research focuses on the interaction between probability, science, and economics. This focus began with his work on a stochastic approach to the coarsening of cellular networks, and that has since branched out to develop new risk measures using stochastic optimal control. This approach has also led to models of online auction behavior, stabilization of systems with white noise and the structural modeling of default bond pricing under the incorporation of recovery processes. Cohen served as the acting director and program coordinator for the Actuarial Science program until August 2013.
