Maria V. Kulikova is a Researcher at the Center for Computational and Stochastic Mathematics (CEMAT), Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon, Portugal. She received MSc in Mathematics (2001) and Economics (2003), and then PhD (2006) degree in Mathematical Cybernetics from Ulyanovsk State University, Russia. Before taking the current position, she worked (2007-2009) as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa and held a six-year Researcher Position (2010-2015) with the Portuguese Research Fund (FCT). Since 2016, she is a Research Associate and Integrated CEMAT member at Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa. In 2020 and 2021, M.V. Kulikova has been recognized as a TOP 2% cited researcher in the world according to Scopus' data in 2019 (DOI, Table S7) and 2020 (DOI, the second Table 1).

Scientific interests/Áreas de Interesse Científico

Her main research interests are in solving mathematical problems related to development of powerful algorithms for control, computing and signal processing. More precisely, the key goals are the derivation of linear/nonlinear Bayesian filtering methods as well as the related adaptive filtering schemes for dynamic state and system parameter estimation with strong emphasis on accuracy and numerical robustness, including the robustness with respect to non-Gaussian uncertainties.
