Fabio Mercurio is a senior researcher at Bloomberg LP, New York.Previously, he was the head of the Financial Engineering at Banca IMI, Milan. He holds a BSc in Applied Mathematics from the University of Padua and a Ph.D. in Mathematical Finance from the Erasmus University of Rotterdam.
His recent scientific interests include interest rate and inflation modelling for pricing and hedging exotics, the pricing of hybrids and the smile modelling for the equity, FX and interest rate markets. Fabio has published several articles in journals such as Mathematical Finance, Quantitative Finance, Finance and Stochastics and Risk. He has also coauthored the book "Interest Rate Models: Theory and Practice", published by Springer.
