About me

I was born in Moscow and received my Specialist's degree (equivalent to B.Sc. + M.Sc.) at Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of Moscow State University. During my undergraduate studies in pure mathematics I found myself having a growing interest in machine learning and applied statistics, which was fueled by two-year program in Data Science at Yandex School of Data Analysis and my job as an analyst in the research group of SmartCAT Company. Currently, I am a 4th-year PhD student in the Department of Statistics at Stanford, advised by Professor Trevor Hastie. My scientific interests include machine learning, applied statistics, especially with applications in biology, computer linguistics and convex optimization.
