Personal profile

Research interests

My present research interests are principally in stability, continuity, optimisation, and long-range dependence in stochastic processes; exact simulation and tail asymptotics of steady-state distributions in Markovian models (with applications in (tele)communications, queueing, risk, andmanufacturing). Jointly with co-authors, I developed various methods for the asymptotic analysis and for simulation of stochastic processes, including the fluid approximation approach, the renovation method, the saturation rule, and direct Markovian methods based on the splitting techniques. Also, my recent publications are devoted to the study of random walks, Markov processes, and stochastic networks with heavy-tailed increments. Within last few year I started to work on problems related to spatial stochastic models and to percolation theory, with applications in wireless networks.
