About me

I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor at the University of California Berkeley, Department of Statistics.

From January 2021 to October 2022 I was a postdoctoral researcher at the department of mathematics ETH, Zürich hosted by Afonso Bandeira.

Between January 2019 and December 2020 I was a postdoctoral researcher at Google Research, Zürich hosted by Olivier Bousquet.

Before that I spent half a year at the department of mathematics, Technion I.I.T. hosted by Shahar Mendelson.

I defended my thesis at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology Moscow in 2018 under the supervision of Vladimir Spokoiny and Konstantin Vorontsov. During my time in Moscow, I was affiliated (part-time) with the Institute for Information Transmission Problems, Higher School of Economics, and Skoltech. 

My main interests are in the intersection of mathematical statistics, probability and learning theory.
