Bekzhan completed his bachelor’s degree in Mathematics at the Moscow State University before going on to study a masters in Mathematical Methods of Optimization and Stochastics at National Research University Higher School of Economics (Moscow). During his master project he focused on the sensitivity of diffusion processes with respect to a perturbation of the coefficients. Throughout his university time, he was keen on the field of probability and stochastic analysis. While at MIGSAA, he wishes to pursue his interest further and to broaden his knowledge in other areas of Mathematics. While not studying, Bekzhan enjoys watching and playing football.
