Professor Andreas Kyprianou from the Department of Mathematical Sciences has received a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award.

The five-year award recognises scientists of outstanding achievement and provides support to enable them to continue their work in the UK undertaking independent, original research.

Prof Kyprianou studies probability theory across applied and pure mathematics.

He said: “I am very grateful to have been nominated by the University for this award. My research concerns the role of randomness in mathematical models and I hope with this award to continue making the case for deep stochastic analysis underpinning applications.”

Professor Paul Milewski, head of the Department of Mathematical Sciences, said: “I am extremely pleased that Prof Andreas Kyprianou has received this prestigious and highly deserved award. Andreas has a huge impact on the department, leading our Centre for Doctoral Training (SAMBa), the probability laboratory (ProbL@B) and a variety of interdisciplinary, industrial and international initiatives."
