Anna Melnykova

Associate Professor in Statistics, at Avignon Université

Starting from September 2021 I am an Associate Professor in Statistics in the University of Avignon, affiliated with the Laboratory of Mathematics (LMA). Prior to that, I had a temporary teaching and research position (ATER) at Grenoble INP. Prior to that, I was a PhD student in Cergy Paris Université, supervised by Eva Löcherbach (professor at Université Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne) and Adeline Leclercq-Samson (professor at Université Grenoble Alpes). My PhD thesis is available here.

My research interests include statistics for stochastic processes with degenerate noise and their application to neuroscience, and some numerical probability. More precisely, I am dealing with parametric inference, approximation schemes, hypothesis testing for diffusions and, more recently, statistics for point processes. The list of my publications is to be found in Research.

In my free time I do nearly all types of outdoor activities (i.e. hiking, cycling, climbing, swimming, skiing, diving) and also read almost everything, starting from German philosophy and Scandinavian myths and ending with civil defense tutorials and all kinds of survival-related literature. Some stuff related to my non-research interests (with photos!) is gathered in Misc
