Christian Furrer


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

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

I chair the Education Committee of the Danish Society of Actuaries, and I am a member of the Education Committees of the Actuarial Association of Europe and the International Actuarial Association.

Together with Mogens Bladt, I am organizing the Seminar in Insurance and Economics.

My complete Curriculum Vitae is available here.

Recent manuscripts


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.
