Emmanuel is a member of the ESRC (Economic & Social Research Council) Peer Review College. He has also refereed for the EPSRC, National Science Foundation (NSF-USA); the Leverhulme Trust; and the FWO (Belgium). He is a member of The Association of Business Schools (ABS) Programmes Steering Committee. He is director of the Institute of Finance and is a co-editor for 'Economics - The Open-Access, Open-Assessment E-Journal'. Emmanuel does research on how concepts from physics can be used in the social sciences (mainly economics and finance). Together with Dr Sandro Sozzo he created the new 'Institute for Quantum Social and Cognitive Science (IQSCS)' He is a member of the board of the International Center for Mathematical Modelling (ICMM) at Linnaeus University (Sweden). He also is a researcher at the ‘Leicester Judgment and Decision Making Research Group.' He also is a member of the ‘Purdue Research Center "Probability and Contextuality Across Disciplines’, at Purdue University, USA.
He also has an interest in other interdisciplinary applications. His social science publications have appeared (amongst others) in the Journal of Mathematical Psychology and the Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control. His physics based publications have appeared (amongst others) in Foundations of Physics; International Journal of Theoretical Physics and Physica Scripta.
Emmanuel was nominated for the 'I love my Academic Award' by the Students' Union. He also received both in 2013 and in 2014 a Superstar Award by the Students' Union for his teaching.
Together with Dr Fethi and Professors Phil Molyneux (Bangor); John Wilson (St. Andrews University) and Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester), an ESRC seminar grant was won on the topic of: Financial Modelling Post 2008: Where Next? With Dideriek Aerts and Bart D’Hooghe, Emmanuel received funding of Euro 236,000 (approximatively £230,000 ($340,000) from the Fund for Scientific Research (FWO, Government of Flanders, Belgium) to test a general economic theory for financial option pricing based on the mathematical formalisms of quantum mechanics. Together with Dr Caraini, Emmanuel received funding from the British Academy (£7,000) to work on non-linear modelling of macroeconomic dynamics. With Dr Hiromu Ishio, Emmanuel was awarded £3,000 from The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation for the funding of a reciprocal visit between Japan and the UK "to collaborate on research linking quantum physics and finance leading to a new joint project in financial engineering for practical application".
The 'Quantum Interaction 2013' conference was hosted at the University of Leicester on 25-27 July 2013. Derek Raine and Emmanuel Haven were the local chairs of this event. The proceedings of accepted papers are published in the LNCS (Springer).
Emmanuel was also co-organiser with Andrei Khrennikov and Jerome Busemeyer; Ehtibar Dzhafarov; Arkady Plotnitsky and Emmanuel Pothos of the conference 'Quantum Probability and the mathematical modelling of decision making' (9-11 March 2015). This event was financially supported by the 'Fields Institute' - University of Toronto.
Within the conference 'Quantum Theory: from foundations to technologies (QTFT)' (Andrei Khrennikov - main organiser), a special session, joint with Andrei Khrennikov, Sandro Sozzo, Ehtibar Dzhafarov is organised on the theme of: 'Quantum-like models in economics and psychology'.
Emmanuel is co-organizer (with Sandro Sozzo) of the Thirteenth Biennial IQSA Quantum Structures Conference (July 2016), at the University of Leicester.
Emmanuel is also co-organizer with Mike Oaksford (Birkbeck College) of the special invited symposium ‘Quantum Probability’ at the ICT conference (August 4-6 – 2016) at Brown University, Providence, USA
Emmanuel has been invited to give talks at the University of Oxford; University of California – Irvine (USA); Purdue University (USA) (in the ‘Winer memorial lectures’); Imperial College; City University (London); Durham University; University of Essex; Aston University; Brunel University; Romanian Academy (Institute for Economic Forecasting); University of Northern Arizona (USA); Fudan University (Shanghai, China); University of Nottingham (Ningbo, China) and other universities.
Applications of physics concepts in social science; applications of wavelet analysis; uses of differential equations in economics and finance
