Senior research scientist, Stanford Center for Biomedical Informatics Research (BMIR)

Research interests

Semantic web; collaboration and social mechanisms in ontology design, evaluation, management, and mapping; evaluation of knowledge-based systems; semantic integration; ontology evolution; knowledge acquisition; semantic technologies in biomedicine.





I grew up in Moscow, Russia. I studied applied math in Moscow State University, got a Master's degree in Computer Science from Boston University, specializing in computer architecture, and a Ph.D. degree from Northeastern University. In my Ph.D. thesis, I studied the issues of ontology design for experimental sciences and use of ontologies in knowledge-based information retrieval. I now work at Stanford Center for Biomedical Informatics Research (BMIR).

Is it Natalya or Natasha?
