Raul Kangro is Associate Professor in Mathematical Finance at the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Tartu. Starting from 1 April 2020, he also works as a Research Integrity Counsellor for the Faculty of Science and Technology. He offers advice and support for university members who have questions about adhering to the principles of research integrity or suspect that research integrity has been violated.
Kangro's research interests include computational methods and computational financial mathematics. He has interacted with various people as the dean of the IT faculty of a small private university, as the Head of the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Tartu, and also as the President of the Estonian Mathematical Society. Raul Kangro has been the holder of a research grant, the main executor of various research topics and also participated in applied research and development projects. He has supervised about 30 master's theses and has been a co-supervisor of one doctoral thesis.
In the field of research ethics, Kangro has mostly come across questions about authorship/co-authorship, as well as issues of conflict of interest.
As a Research Integrity Counsellor, Raul Kangro hopes to help his colleagues and students at the Faculty of Science and Technology to understand the sometimes quite tricky requirements of research integrity and to help them understand what would be the best course of action when they suspect research integrity has been violated.
