Interests

John Moriarty is Professor of Mathematics in the School of Mathematical Sciences, where he is also the School impact lead. 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, MSc in Applied Statistics and DPhil in Mathematics from the University of Oxford. After the completion of his studies he held a post-doctoral research fellowship at University College Cork. He currently holds an EPSRC Early Career Research Fellowship, and serves as Principal Organiser for the 2019 Isaac Newton Institute programme on the Mathematics of Energy Systems.

His current research interests are in applied probability, real options analysis, and applications in energy. He is an EPSRC Early Career Research Fellow and other funding details can be found on the RCUK gateway to research.
