About Me


Hi! I am a fourth-year graduate student in the CMS department at Caltech. I am working with Professors Andrew Stuart and Tapio Schneider on applications of data-driven techniques to climate modelling.

Prior to starting at Caltech in 2017, I graduated from Moscow State University, CMC department in 2013, and worked four years at various R&D positions in industry.

In my spare time, I like to do sports (tennis, table tennis, surfing, football), hang out with friends, watch movies, and drink good tea.
