In June-July 2015 I was be in charge of "Research experience" program at the Mathematics Department of UIUC. See some materials below UIUC,

Since May 2018, I was organizing a conference "Hausdorff Geometry of Polynomials and Polynomial Sequences" at the Mittag-Leffler institute. Here are some materials: IMLConference,

Here is my daughter Sonya and her descendants She has translated into Russian some funny novels of Woody Allen Well, I am a granddad already

Here are my twins Elias and Benjamin, Here they come!
