Professor 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 around 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 close to Den Haag (The Hague).
  • 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.
  • After a year, in 2006, I moved to a readership at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Bath.
  • In 2008, I became a full professor, around which time, together with colleagues, I began building the Probability Laboratory at Bath (Prob-L@B).
  • For two months in 2010 I was visiting professor at the Mathematics Department, Université Libre de Bruxelles.
  • Between August 2012 and February 2013, I was visiting professor at the Institute for Mathematical Research, ETH Zürich.
  • Between 2014-2017 I held a visiting professorship at CIMAT, Mexico. I continue to visit CIMAT on average, every 4-6 months.
  • In 2014, I was PI for the approx £4M EPSRC CDT grant, subsequently becoming 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 which later became the CIMAT-UNAM-Warwick-Bath research platform.
  • Between 2015 and 2022, I was also working with a broad range of mathematicians, statisticians and data scientists on the Data Science Capacity Building in Mongolia project, which has been covered by several grants, including three sessions of GCRF funding from UKRI.
  • In 2019, I was again PI for another five years of EPSRC funding (approx £5M) for CDT SAMBa, continuing as its co-director.
  • During the 2020 pandemic lockdown, together with Prof. Leif Döring from Mannheim University, I initiated the One World Seminar project.
  • In 2020, I took up the role of director of the Institute for Mathematical Innovation at the University of Bath introducing the concept of the (Mathematical) Innovation Research Associate.
  • In 2022, I became PI of the (FEC) £7.3M EPSRC programme grant "Mathematics of Radiation Transport: Nuclear Technology Frontiers (MaThRad)".
  • In 2023, I moved to the Department of Statistics at the University of Warwick and became Director of the Centre for Applications of the Mathematical and Computing Sciences (CAMaCS).
