Emil is a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries and holds a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin in Madison. He joined the University of Connecticut in 2007 but had a brief stint (2013-2015) as professor and director of the actuarial science program at Michigan State University. His prime research of interest is actuarial science that cover topics in copula models, dependencies, post-retirement asset management, and some related to risk measures and capital allocation. In recent years, his research work has evolved around the applications of data science and statistical modeling to actuarial and insurance problems. The quality of his research has been recognized through awards that include the E. A. Lew Award, the Halmstad Memorial Prize, and the Hachemeister Prize.
