Currently I am a postdoc at the Empirical Inference Department of Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, Tübingen, Germany.
I received a diploma (MSc equivalent) in 2010 from Lomonosov Moscow State University and PhD in 2014 from Dorodnicyn
Computing Center of Russian Academy of Sciences
where I worked with Konstantin Vorontsov on statistical learning theory.

My main research fields are statistical learning theory and theory of machine learning. Particularly, I focus on tight data-dependent generalization error and excess risk bounds
in machine learning, which could shed some light on the process of learning, potentially leading to new and more accurate learning algorithms. Also I am interested in tools, used
to achieve these goals (which are extremely interesting and rich fields of research on their own), including concentration of measure inequalities and empirical process theory.

My CV can be found here.

Things I'm doing outside of office

Workouts and health tracking: I workout regularly and collect all kind of data I can get about my body and health. In future I hope to run some algorithms on this data to see
if I can build a reasonable model of fitness / health. All the info is available in this text file (except hurt rate listings), which is regularly updated. Feel free to use it ;)
