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. This site is an attempt to consolidate online presence and was done due to concerns about what social networking sites, professional or otherwise, do with one's personal information.

If you would like to keep in touch via social networking, check out some sites I am part of. Otherwise, feel free to contact me directly with comments and/or questions. Thanks for visiting!
