I was born in St. Petersburg/Russia and grew up there until I moved to Palm Harbor/Florida at nine years old. I got a BS in physics from the University of Florida, have worked in Los Alamos/New Mexico and Toronto/Canada, got a Ph.D. in physics at Yale University in May 2017, was a postdoc at Caltech, and now I am adjunct faculty at UMD College Park while working for NIST. I have been interested in math & science since middle school and aim to stay in academia for as long as possible.
