## Alex Adamou

### Resident Fellow

Dr Alex Adamou is a Fellow of the London Mathematical Laboratory. He is an applied mathematician with interests in finance, economics, and probability theory. His current work examines the mathematical frameworks in which economic ideas – such as market efficiency, utility, and wealth inequality – are usually considered. His academic background is in continuum mechanics and asymptotic and numerical methods (Cambridge and Imperial). He was previously in charge of mathematical modelling for a financial technology start-up and was once a professional gambler.
