Dr Alex Bespalov is a Senior Lecturer in Applied Mathematics at the University of Birmingham. Alex obtained his PhD in Computational Mathematics from the Russian Academy of Sciences in 1999. Before joining the University of Birmingham, he held postdoctoral research positions at Universidad de Concepción (Chile), Brunel University, and the University of Manchester.
Alex specialises in numerical analysis and scientific computing. He is particularly interested in developing robust and accurate numerical algorithms for solving mathematical problems arising in uncertainty quantification and machine learning. His recent research is focused on the design, mathematical analysis, and efficient implementation of the state-of-the-art adaptive algorithms for numerical approximation of high-dimensional functions - solutions of partial differential equations with random input data.
