Mike Lipkin has been an options market maker for the past 21 years on the American Stock Exchange. He has also done research in derivatives, producing with M. Avellaneda a generally accepted theory of the pinning of optionable stocks on expirations. Current research involves take-overs, earnings and special announcements, all topics covered in the course, Experimental Finance, he co-developed and teaches here with Sacha Stanton.

His background includes a PhD in Chemistry, but the best training for derivatives work has been a mild expertise in bridge playing.
