‘Math is Beautiful’

Anna Kozhina, a Research Assistant at HSE’s international Laboratory of Stochastic Analysis and its Applications, earned her PhD at Heidelberg University in Germany with highest distinction and earned an academic degree of the first category  from HSE’s new Dissertation Committee. This year Anna’s dissertation was awarded the Wilma-Moser prize, which recognizes the best work among female graduate students in the natural sciences. In an interview with HSE News Service, Anna discussed what made her fall in love with mathematics and how science keeps her on her toes.

International workshop  "LSA winter meeting"

International laboratory of stochastic analysis and its applications organizes international workshop "LSA winter meeting" with the participation of foreign leading researchers on 04-07 December 2017. Venue: Russia, Moscow region.  Language: English.

ENSAE to Become a Strategic Partner of Statistical Modelling and Actuarial Science Master Program

The new master program Statistical Modelling and Actuarial Science is for students interested in mastering modern probability, statistics methodology, and modelling methods in economic processes, as well as mathematics of insurance theory. Core courses will be instructed by the members of the international Laboratory of Stochastic Analysis and its Applications.

New Tenured Professors at HSE

On April 29, 2016 at the Academic Council meeting 25 HSE Professors were conferred the status of Tenured Professor.
