I’m a Ph.D. student in the Machine Learning Department at CMU, advised by Eric Xing. I’ve also spent time at OpenAI (2017) and Google Research (2018).

Research interests:
Sequential decision making, multi-task learning, deep learning, graphical models, interpretable ML. Applications in healthcare, natural language, multi-agent systems, and general AI.

I hold M.Sc. in Computer Science from KAUST where I worked with Khaled Salama and collaborated with Gert Cauwenberghs on neuromorphic approaches to machine learning. Before that I studied Physics at Lomonosov Moscow State University and Data Analysis at Yandex School of Data Analysis.

I’ve recently co-founded Carnegie Mellon AI+, an intellectual hub where we envision and build the AI-driven industry of the future. We’re regularly hosting talks by co-founders of AI startups as well as AI teams from the industry. Please reach out to us.

Besides my professional activities, I am a member of Carnegie Marathon Club, love doing sports and hiking in beautiful places. Also, I grew up in Moscow and speak Russian.
