I am a mathematician working at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Bath with specialism in pure and applied probability. My research interests predominantly span the following topics:

Anything which can be proved in a beautiful way using a martingale

Branching Processes, Branching Diffusions and Superprocesses.

Fragmentation and Coalescence

Fixed point equations (smoothing transforms) and travelling waves

Random Walks, Brownian motion, Lévy processes and Self-similar Markov processes

Optimal stopping problems, stochastic games and stochastic control problems

Monte-Carlo simulation of stochastic processes

Please see my invitation here to you to submit you work to Acta AM.

I also serve as series editor for three book series. I will be more than happy to hear from you if you have a suggestion for a book project.

Springer: Stochastic Modelling and Applied Probability.

Dear Colleagues, I am writing to encourage you to consider the following venue when submitting your forthcoming articles for peer reviewed publication:

Covering a large spectrum from modeling to qualitative analysis and computational methods, Acta Applicandae Mathematicae contains papers on different aspects of the relationship between theory and applications, ranging from descriptive papers on actual applications meeting contemporary mathematical standards to proofs of new and deep theorems in applied mathematics.

Responding to the ever more elaborate and deep rooted connections between probability theory and other fields of mathematics as well as the important role that probability plays in stochastic modelling across, for example, the physical, biological, engineering and economic sciences, Acta Applicandae Mathematicae would like to encourage a greater contribution to its portfolio of published material that is underpinned by probability theory.

From January 2011, I have taken on the role of Corresponding Editor with the primary function of dealing with probabilistic submissions. Amongst the supporting editorial board are to be found:

Julien Berestycki (Oxford, UK and Paris VI, France),

Svetlana Boyarchenko (University of Texas at Austin, USA),

Robert Dalang (EPFL, Switzerland), Ben Hambly (Oxford University, UK),

Steffen Dereich (Munster, Germany),

Ioannis Kontoyiannis (Athens University of Economics & Business, Greece),

Arturo Kohatsu-Higa (Osaka University, Japan).

On behalf of the editorial board,

Andreas Kyprianou

In 1993 I graduated with a first class honours Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics from the University of Oxford, where I studied at St. Anne's College. In 1996 I graduated from the School of Mathematics and Statitics, Sheffield University with Ph.D. in Probability Theory under the supervision of John Biggins. I then worked for six months at the Department of Statistics in the London School of Economics as a temporary lecturer. In 1997, I moved to The Netherlands where I worked for nearly two years for Shell International Exploration and Production as a mathematician in their Rijswijk research laboratories. I returned to academia at the end of 1998, where I took up a temporary lectureship at the School of Mathematics, Edinburgh University. There, I ran one of the UK's first MSc programmes in Mathematical Finance. At the turn of the Millennium, I moved back to The Netherlands where I worked at the Mathematical Institute at Utrecht Univeristy as a "Mathematics in Focus" research fellow with the tile of univeristeit docent (assistant professor). I spent over five very happy years there, during which time I obtained tenure. In mid 2005, I moved back to the UK. Initially I took a readership at The School of Mathematical and Computer Science, Heriot Watt in Edinburgh, but after a year, in 2006, I moved to a readership at in my current department at the University of Bath. In 2008, I became a full professor, around which time, together with colleagues, I began working on building the Probability Laboratory at Bath (Prob-L@B) and continue to do so today. For two months in 2010 I was visiting professor at the Mathematics Department, Université Libre de Bruxelles and between August 2012 and February 2013, I was visiting professor at the Institute for Mathematical Research, ETH Zürich. Since 2014 I hold a visiting professorship at CIMAT, Mexico, where I visit, on average, every 3-6 months. In 2014, following the award of a (circa) 4 million pound grant from EPSRC, on which I serve as PI, I became co-director of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Statistical Applied Mathematics (SAMBa). In 2015, together with numerous colleagues, I began working on the Bath-UNAM-CIMAT (BUC) research platform. Since 2015, I have also been working with a broad range of mathematicians, statisticians and data scientists on the International Mathematics and Statistical Research Collaboration with Mongolia.
