I obtained my PhD degree in Probability and Statistics at Moscow State Univiersity in 2002. I have made a two-year postdoc in EURANDOM (the Netherlands), another two-year postdoc at Queen's Univiersity (Canada) before coming to France where I have spent 3 years as a postdoc at INRIA Grenoble, LJK and as ATER in Ensimag (Polytech Grenoble). Since 2014 I have a permanent position at the Univiersity of Poitiers. I am also holding a research position at the Institut for Information Transmission Problems (Moscow, Russia).

Research interests

  • Change-point problems

  • Non-parametric estimation and hypothesis testing

  • High-dimensional statistics

  • Statistical methods in bioinformatics

  • Statistical methods in security

Current Work

  • Adaptive tests for polynomial regression against a general alternative, with T. Krivobokova (University of Vienne) and P. Serra (University of Amsterdam)

  • High-dimensional change-point detection from indirect observations, with A. Juditsky (LJK, Grenoble)

  • Testing the change in mean for long-range dependent data, with M. Clausel (University of Lorraine) and F. Roueff (Telecom ParisTech)


I am the head of the 1st year of Master program in Statistics for Life Sciences of the University of Poitiers.

I am currently teaching the Master level courses in Nonparametric Statistics, Statistical inference, Data Mining, Data Analysis and Machine Learning.
