Prof Max Finkelstein is a Distinguished Professor in Statistics/Mathematical Statistics at the UFS. He also holds the position of visiting researcher at Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research, Rostock, Germany and visiting research professor (from 2014) at the ITMO University, St Petersburg, Russia.

He received a PhD in OR (mathematical theory of reliability) from Leningrad Elektropribor Institute, 1979 and a Doctor of Science (habilitation) from St Petersburg Elektropribor Institute, 1993.

His research focus is concentrated on stochastic shock processes, hazard rates in heterogeneous populations, models of imperfect repair, survival in dynamic environment, and wear and degradation processes.

Current editorial activities include being editor-in-chief of The South African Statistical Journal; editor of the ESRA (European Safety and Reliability Association) Book Series; and associate editor of Stochastic Models in Business and Industry. He serves on the editorial boards of Journal of Risk and Reliability; The International Journal of Reliability, Quality and Safety Engineering, Informatics and Applications; and Systems and Means of Informatics.

The list of publications includes over 170 papers and five books. The monograph ‘Failure Rate Modelling for Reliability and Risk’ was published by Springer in 2008. Another monograph (co-authored with J.H. Cha) ‘Stochastic Modelling for Reliability: Shocks, Burn-in, and Heterogeneous Populations’ was published by Springer in April 2013.
