Professor Andreas Kyprianou

About me

Andreas is a Professor of probability theory at Department of Statistics with specialism in pure and applied probability. My current research interests predominantly span the following topics:

  • Continuous-state branching processes, Branching Markov processes and Superprocesses.
  • Fragmentation and Coalescence
  • Stochastic modelling of radiation transport
  • Self-similar Markov processes, Markov additive processes and Lévy processes
  • Monte-Carlo simulation of stochastic processes
  • Anything which can be proved in a beautiful way using a martingale

I am PI of the £7.3M programme grant MaThRad (Mathematical Theory of Radiation Transport), which looks at stochastic modelling and Monte Carlo simulation of various forms of radiation and their application in the energy, healthcare and space industries.

I am always looking for talented PhD students

In previous incarnations:

I have held academic positions at the LSE, Edinburgh University, Utrecht Univeristy (where I also held a five-year "Mathematics in Focus" research fellowship), Heriot-Watt University and the University of Bath as well as spending time as a visiting professor at ETH Zürich, Université Libre de Bruxelles and CIMAT, Mexico. Whilst at Bath I built up Prob-L@B over a period of 15 or more years. For 9 years and two funding sessions I was PI and co-director of the EPSRC CDT SAMBa at Bath, as well as director for the Institute of Mathematical Innovation, also in Bath. Together with Leif Döring, I initiated the One World Seminar project during the global lockdown of 2020.
