Let's talk about your first mathematical memories. When you were still a child. What was your first encounter with mathematics, your first mathematical 'shock wave'? Yacov Sinaï was your PhD supervisor at Princeton. He has just received the Abel Prize, one of the most prestigious mathematical awards. What can you tell us about him? After you PhD what did you do? And you began your career in France as Senior scientist at CNRS... Which mathematician has influenced you the most?

Résumé : Alexander Bufetov got his Diploma in Mathematics at the Independent University of Moscow in 1999 and his PhD at Princeton University in 2005. After one year as a Postdoctoral student at the University of Chicago, he was employed as an Assistant Professor at Rice University where he also held the 'Edgar Odell Lovett Junior Chair'. In 2009, Alexander Bufetov joined the Steklov Mathematical Institute where he passed his habilitation thesis in order to supervise PhD students. In 2012, he became a CNRS Senior Researcher for the LATP (Laboratoire d'Analyse, Topologie, Probabilités) department at Aix-Marseille University. Alexander Bufetov has received several prizes: a Prize by Moscow Mathematical Society in 2005, a grant by the Sloan Foundation and a grant from the President of the Russian Federation in 2010 and also a grant from the Simons Foundation at the Independent University of Moscow in 2011. His research area is the Ergodic theory of dynamical systems.
