I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Computer Science of the University of California, Santa Barbara, working as a Graduate Student Researcher at the Databases, Data Mining, and Bioinformatics Lab (DBL), and being advised by Ambuj K. Singh. My research interests are machine learning and data mining, combinatorial algorithms, linear algebra, and their application to the analysis of dynamic graphs, such as online social networks. Prior to joining DBL, I had worked in high-performance computing (CSC, LBNL), and spent several years as a software engineer in industry. I have obtained my Master's degree in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science with an emphasis on Numerical Analysis from Tula State University, Russia in 2008, having been advised by Valeriy Ivanov.
