    Ukraine - Last active: 6 months ago - Tests: 7

    I'm Alex from Ukraine. I finished National Metallurgical Academy of Ukraine where I obtained a Ph.D degree in mathematical modelling and computational methods. My research is related to using statistical models to improve making decisions about the state of the objects that are evaluated by non-destructive methods (NDT). Not only does this research involve math matters, but also it involves matters concerning with developing applications for handling data, signal processing and so on. I was educated at Dnipropetrovsk national university (radio-electronic automatic department) and obtained master degree there. My major was non-destructive testing (NDT). It includes different subjects related to developing ndt devices as well as handling data obtained as a result of testing. I'm working for Dnipropetrovsk national university as an assistant professor. I have a blog, which you can visit by the following link: http://www.alex-koshulyan.name/index.php/en/
