I am a Ph.D. student in Machine Learning Department at CMU advised by Eric Xing. My research interests are in learning theory, information theory, representation learning, including various latent variable models. I am also interested in applications in healthcare, natural language, and general AI.

I got an M.Sc. in Computer Science from KAUST where I worked with Khaled Salama and collaborated with Gert Cauwenberghs on neuromorphic approaches to machine learning. I also hold a B.Sc. in Physics from Lomonosov Moscow State University and M.Eng. in Data Analysis from Yandex Data School.

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. Feel free to talk to me in Russian.
