Christian Furrer


I am a tenure track assistant professor in actuarial mathematics at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Copenhagen.

Broadly speaking, I conduct research on the interface between actuarial mathematics, probability theory, statistics, and financial mathematics with applications towards especially disability, health, and life insurance as well as pensions. I aim at building bridges between academia and practice, an effort for which I have been awarded the 2019 Gauss Prize.

My complete Curriculum Vitae is available here.

Upcoming events

I plan on attending the following conferences:

  • 2023 PARTY, 29 January – 3 February 2023, Valencia, Spain
  • 2023 AFMATH, February 2023, Brussels, Belgium
  • 2023 IME, July 2023, Edinburgh, Scotland

I am a member of the project frame InterAct. InterAct stands for Interaction in Actuarial Science. The vision for InterAct is to elevate the actuarial research and education activities of the Department of Mathematical Sciences with and towards the industry by creating significant increases in volume, variation, and practical relevance to the benefit of all parties.
