What are some good references to study Stochastic Control with applications to Finance, like the Merton problem and other variants? Books or review papers?

Peter Forsyth of UWaterloo is my favourite author on this topic (one of my top three in MathFin!)

Personal Homepage with Lots of Papers

Optimal allocation under wealth goals, optimal decumulation strategies, etc

I find his writing style very honest and open, yet to find a typo and the notation is super clear.

Look into Huyên Pham, Continuous-time Stochastic Control and Optimization with Financial Applications; Salvatore Federico, Giorgio Ferrari, Luca Regis (Editors). Applications of Stochastic Optimal Control to Economics and Finance.

Best Book in my opinion is to read 'Derivatives Principles and Practice' by Sundaram Das. Please buy it.

    $\begingroup$ Looking through the table of contents, are you sure that the book covers stochastic control theory? It looks more like a similar version to Hull's book? $\endgroup$
