Biography

I am a Postdoctoral researcher in the Statistics Department at Stanford University, where I work with Emmanuel Candès.

I studied mathematics and computer science at Saint-Petersburg State University, Russia, graduating with the Dipl. Math. degree with honors in 2004. I then joined the Communication Technology Laboratory at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, as a research assistant. My advisor at ETH was Helmut Bölcskei. In 2007 I was a visiting researcher at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, US. I graduated from ETH Zurich in 2010, receiving the Dr. Sc. degree. My Ph.D. thesis was awarded with an ETH Medal. From 2010 to 2012, I was a postdoctoral researcher at ETH Zurich.

In 2012, I received a two-year Fellowship for Advanced Researchers by the Swiss National Science Foundation. In 2015, the team I led received a Second Prize in Thomson Reuters Eikon Text Tagging Challenge (Innocentive 9933333), a machine learning and natural language processing competition.

Outside interests: Backcountry skiing and snowboarding, rock climbing, alpinism, surfing, kitesurfing.
