About me

I am a research scientist at DeepMind working on AI safety. My PhD in statistics and machine learning at Harvard focused on building interpretable models. I co-founded the Future of Life Institute, a non-profit organization working to mitigate technological risks to humanity and increase the chances of a positive future. 

I did a lot of math contests back in the day, and got a silver medal at the International Math Olympiad. In my spare time, I enjoy aerial silks, rock climbing, dancing, hiking, and meditating. My official name is Viktoriya, but I usually go by Victoria or Vika.
