Dr Maurice Peat has a PhD in Finance from UTS, in the area of distress modelling. He joined the university in 2004 from UTS, where he held a senior lectureship in the Faculty of Business. He taught in both the School of Finance & Economics and Business Information Systems during his 15 year tenure at UTS.
Maurice's current research interests cover such topics as credit risk and corporate distress analysis, a managerial decision context for financial analysis, the economics of restructuring transactions and risk management in the energy sector.
While our ability to accumulate data (such as financial data) is increasing, our capability to analyse them is still inadequate despite technological improvements. The new Visual Analytics methods will allow processing of the massive and time-varying data so that the time-critical decisions can be made with minimum effort.
ARC Linkage Grant
