Dr Elena Hernandez


Dr. Hernandez’ research and teaching background is in the broad areas of probability and statistics. She is a lecturer (teaching and scholarship) in the Department of Statistics, School of Mathematics at the University of Leeds. Her research background is in stochastic control in continuous time, and in studying partial differential equations (PDEs) and fractional PDEs via probabilitis methods. Prior to this position, she was a teaching fellow at the Imperial College London (2020-2022), and a research fellow at the University of Warwick (2016-2020).

Research interests

Particulary, but not exclusively, her research interest lies on the broad areas of:

  • Stochastic control in continuous time
  • Stochastic analysis and semimartingale theory
  • Fractional calculues (fractional PDEs), and their connection with stochastic processes
