Personal Profile

Dr. Emmanuel Haven earned a bachelor of arts and master of arts in economics from McGill University and a PhD in finance from Concordia University. He’s the former head of the finance division at the School of Business, University of Leicester (United Kingdrom).

His research applies concepts from physics to social science. He has published in social science journals such as Economic Theory, Journal of Mathematical Psychology, European Journal of Operational Research, Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, International Review of Financial Analysis, Theory and Decision and Frontiers in Psychology. He also has published in science journals such as Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A, Foundations of Physics, Physica Scripta, International Journal of Theoretical Physics, Acta Applicandae Mathematicae, Progress in Biophysics, Molecular Biology and other journals.

Dr. Haven has been awarded several times a ‘super star award’ from the Students' Union (University of Leicester) for his teaching.
