Who am I

I am Applied Research Scientist at and also doing some research projects with Neural Systems and Deep Learning lab, my field of study is Natural Language Understanding, since NLU seems to be not possible without Deep Learning, the DL is my secondary area of interest.

My publications could be found here. If you want to read any publication, which is listed, but has no link, just write me an email.

I have wide experience in Information Retrieval:

  • I’ve launched (as part of a team) the Sputnik, Russian government-sponsored search engine.
  • I’ve worked on Yandex.News quality (ranking and clusterization).

I also have experience with Computer Vision & Robotics:

  • I’ve developed CV for a robot (see below) & some aspects of Cognitive Technologies driver-assistant.
  • For the testing purposes, we’ve created a wheeled robot, where I was resposible for driving control (including the CV part).

My short CV is available here. The full CV is here.
