Priya Dev is a lecturer in Finance and Statistics. Priya’s early research focused on mathematics for finance, in particular, how long memory in asset prices can be used to capitalise on arbitrage opportunities. Priya’s research continues in this area, with her interests also extending to include applications in data science, decentralised finance, and digital assets. She applies a machine learning technique at the intersection of her interests to understand the propagation of trust for application to pricing blockchain technologies. Priya’s research has been published in a range of peer-reviewed academic journals including Energy Conversion and Management and British Journal of Sports Medicine. She also publishes in the popular press and offers thought leadership in finance and blockchain technology on ABC Radio. Priya has applied her research to consult to ASX-listed companies. She has co-founded a financial technology startup which provides online ordering and analytics to the hospitality sector and she is the co-author of a patent that powers this technology. Extensions of her research also include the development of data science videos with Lightbend and IBM.
