Lessons Learned From Building Big Data Systems at Twitter

I spent an extended sabbatical at Twitter from 2010-2012 working on
analytics infrastructure to support data science and services designed
to surface relevant content to users. During this time, Twitter's
Hadoop data warehouse grew from dozens of nodes to tens of thousands
of nodes across multiple datacenters, ingesting tens of terabytes
daily from dozens of heterogeneous sources. I also had the opportunity
to contribute to a variety of data products, including real-time

Arbitrage and hedging with American options

We consider a financial market in discrete time where stocks are available for dynamic trading, and liquid American options are available for static trading. We assume that the American options are infinitely divisible, and can only be bought but not sold. We establish the fundamental theorem of asset pricing and the dualities for the hedging prices of European and American options, for both the case without model ambiguity and the case with non-dominated model uncertainty.

A Marked Cox Model for IBNR Claims: Theory and Application

Incurred but not reported (IBNR) loss reserving is a very important issue for Property & Casualty (P&C) insurers. To calculate IBNR reserve, one needs to model claim arrivals and then predict IBNR claims. However, factors such as temporal dependence among claim arrivals and exposure fluctuation are often not incorporated in most of the current loss reserving models, which greatly affect the accuracy of IBNR predictions.
