Eric Butts

Eric Butts Dr. Eric Butts joined Daniel H. Wagner Associates in 1986. Most of his work with the firm has been in the areas of statistical modeling, simulation, and algorithm development. Primarily he has applied these methodologies to mathematical finance, data fusion, and anti-submarine warfare (ASW).

Dr. Butts's recent mathematical finance projects include the development of a computerized trading system and supporting trading strategies for an international investment firm and a project to develop a loan migration analysis system for Bank of America to support reserve setting for business loan losses and business loan portfolio analysis. Dr. Butts also was involved in the development of a model to forecast the residual values of autos coming off lease. A second focus of this effort was to assess a leasing company's exposure to residual value risk.

In addition to the mathematical finance projects mentioned above, Dr. Butts has worked on several projects related to the development of data fusion systems for the Navy and the AWACS community, a project to develop a scoping tool for submarine surveillance systems, and has developed an acoustic computation server that supports the tactical software suite of the Navy's multi-mission helicopter. He also has worked on the development and demonstration of an electro-mechanical probe capable of detecting cartilage degradation and small enough to be used in a clinical setting.

Dr. Butts's technical interests and expertise include finance, probability, and computing. He has considerable software development experience in C/C++, Ada, Python, and Perl.

Dr. Butts received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from Ohio State University in 1985. He received his M.S. and B.S. in Mathematics from Ohio State University in 1979 and 1978, respectively.
