# Professor Alex Novikov

### Biography

Alexander Novikov is Professor of Mathematics at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, UTS.

Prior to this appointment in 1999 he was Leading Research Fellow at the Steklov Mathematical Institute (Moscow, since 1970) and Senior Lecture at the University of Newcastle (Australia, from 1996 to 1999).

He received a PhD in Mathematics in 1972 and his Doctor of Science degree in 1982, both from the Steklov Mathematical Institute. He has published more than 90 research papers in different areas of stochastic processes, statistics of random processes, sequential analysis, random fields and mathematical finance. He has also been invited to more than 80 visiting appointments at leading mathematical institutions.
