About Us

Research Area

The research areas of CMS members are listed as below:

Statistics and Data Science (SDS)

SDS group undertakes research into a diverse range of fundamental and applied statistics, in particular with the emergence of the “Big Data” phenomenon. The team members specialize in a wide range of multidisciplinary researches that spans the fields of computer science, medicine, public policy, finance, quality control, and others.

Financial Mathematics (FM)

FM group focuses on the applications of data envelopment analysis and econometrics in portfolio/risk management, deep learning in financial networks, stochastic processes and universal portfolio, as well as pricing and valuation of natural gas related commodities.

Operations Research (OR)

OR group focuses on various research fields, including supply chain, logistics, transportation system, optimization, inventory control, numerical modeling and analysis. The team members also aim to provide consultancy on the related research field.

Discrete Mathematics (DM)

DM group forms the basis of many real-world scientific fields, especially in computer science. The primary techniques learnt in a discrete mathematics course can be applied to numerous fields such as cryptography and data sciences.
