Spotlight on Dr. Iris Marie Mack: Founder of The Global Energy Post and MathQED



Today, I'm honored to spotlight Dr. Iris Marie Mack, a brilliant woman who has earned a doctorate in Applied Mathematics from Harvard University. She has worked at various energy and financial institutions, acted as a faculty member at MIT, and worked at NASA and AT&T Bell Labs – where she obtained a patent for research on optical fibers. Doesn't she remind you of the women from Hidden Figures?

Dr. Mack has also been named one of Glamour Magazine’s Top 10 Working Women, and she is no novice writer. She has published three financially-focused books and this time we are spotlighting Energy Trading and Risk Management. I know this is not the usual non-fiction business book I would feature on my blog, but I love supporting strong women and their intelligent work.

​A comprehensive overview of trading and risk management in the energy markets

Energy Trading and Risk Management provides a comprehensive overview of global energy markets from one of the foremost authorities on energy derivatives and quantitative finance. With an approachable writing style, Iris Mack breaks down the three primary applications for energy derivatives markets – Risk Management, Speculation, and Investment Portfolio Diversification – in a way that hedge fund traders, consultants, and energy market participants can apply in their day to day trading activities.
  • Moving from the fundamentals of energy markets through simple and complex derivatives trading, hedging strategies, and industry-specific case studies, Dr. Mack walks readers through energy trading and risk management concepts at an instructive pace, supporting her explanations with real-world examples, illustrations, charts, and precise definitions of important and often-misunderstood terms.
  • From stochastic pricing models for exotic derivatives, to modern portfolio theory (MPT), energy portfolio management (EPM), to case studies dealing specifically with risk management challenges unique to wind and hydro-electric power, the bookguides readers through the complex world of energy trading and risk management to help investors, executives, and energy professionals ensure profitability and optimal risk mitigation in every market climate.
Energy Trading and Risk Management is a great resource to help grapple with the very interesting but oftentimes complex issues that arise in energy trading and risk management.
