    Gennady Kulikov

    Gennady Yu. Kulikov graduated from the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of the Moscow State University (Diploma Cum Laude) in 1988, and earned his Ph.D. (Russian degree "Candidate of Sciences in Physics and Mathematics") from the Computing Center of Russian Academy of Sciences in 1994. He obtained his Habilitation (Russian degree "Doctor of Sciences in Physics and Mathematics") in 2002. Dr. Kulikov worked at the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of the Ulyanovsk State University in Russia from 1993 till his relocation to South Africa in 2004, where he became a Senior Lecturer and, then, a Reader at the University of the Witwatersrand (School of Computational and Applied Mathematics, Faculty of Science). In 2009, he emigrated to Portugal and became a full-time Researcher (Investigador Auxiliar under his 5-year "Ciencia 2008" contract from the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) of Portugal) at CEMAT, Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa. In 2013, he was granted a new 5-year full-time contract at the same institution as a Senior Research Fellow (Investigador Principal under his "Investigador FCT 2013" contract). His research interests focus mainly on the theory of numerical methods for differential and differential-algebraic equations with special emphasis to global error estimation and control techniques. They also cover applications of adaptive differential equation solvers with global error control to fluid mechanics and to nonlinear Kalman filtering, including state estimation of chemical and industrial reactors, target tracking and aerospace navigation systems. For many years, he has published widely in national and international peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings (about 80 papers) and enjoyed a number of research grants. He has served as a referee for various national and international peer reviewed publications and as a reviewer for Mathematical Reviews of the American Mathematical Society (AMS). Over the years, he taught several undergraduate and graduate courses in computational mathematics, numerical methods for differential equations, computational linear algebra, and prepared a number of M.Sc. and Ph.D. students. He also supervised postdoctoral research projects in the area of his expertise.
