Biography / Academic Interests :
I have been working in probability theory and mathematical statistics since 1969. My main field of activity,  nonparametric statistics,  the investigation of the Brownian motion, random walk, their local time, additive functionals and anisotropic walks. Most of my results are strong theorems (that is to say almost sure results), and many are in the field of strong approximation.
