Title

Covid: A Lesson in Risk Management

Bio

Nassim Nicholas Taleb was an option arbitrage trader for more than two decades, closing more than half a million option transactions, before becoming a researcher and scholar of risk and probability. He is the author of Dynamic Hedging: Managing Vanilla and Exotic Options (Wiley 1997), which bridges the gap between theory and practice, as well as Statistical Consequences of Fat Tails (STEM 2020), on how to adapt statistical methods to handle nonGaussian distributions. Taleb spent 12 years at Tandon as a distinguished professor of risk engineering and published more than 70 technical papers related to applied probability. His nontechnical work, grouped in the Incerto (which includes The Black Swan and Antifragile, etc.) is published in 47 languages.
