Sergei Fedotov is a Professor of Applied Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics, University of Manchester. He obtained his PhD (1986) from the Ural Federal University. Fedotov held research positions in London (1990), Aachen (1993-1995), Wuppertal (1997) and Berlin (1998) before joining the Department of Mathematics, UMIST in Manchester as a Lecturer in 1998. He was promoted in 2005 to Professor of Applied Mathematics. He held visiting professor positions at Stanford University (USA), Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (Spain), University Lyon 1 (France), the University of New South Wales, Sydney (Australia).
Fedotov’s research focuses on random walk theory and reaction-transport systems. He has successfully applied anomalous random walk ideas to a broad range of analytical studies of non-Markovian transport phenomena. Fedotov has been supported by EPSRC Research Grant (EP/D03115X/1) Waves in reaction-transport systems with memory and long distance dispersal effects' as a PI (2006-2008). Fedotov has been a Team Leader of FP6 Project NEST-028192 FEPRE The formation of Europe: prehistoric population dynamics and the roots of socio-cultural diversity (2007-2010), PI of the EPSRC project EP/J019526/1 (£291,257) Anomalous reaction-transport equations (2012-2016). Fedotov has been a PI of the EPSRC grant EP/N018060/1 (£371,157) Non-Markovian models of intracellular transport in a heterogeneous environment (2016-2019).
Currently, he manages as PI two grants:
1) FAPESP-UoM grant (£40,000): Random walks with strongly correlated memory and applications to biology, 2018-2022;
2) EPSRC EP/V008641/1 (£702,576): Modelling anomalous transport of nanoparticles and DNA repair to improve radiotherapy, 2021-2024.
