I am an Assistant Professor at Florida State University. My research is in Data Science, Large-scale Data Management, Scalable Machine/Deep Learning, Web-search, and Mobile Computing. My Erdös number is 3.

Before FSU, I spent 2 wonderful years at University of Texas as a Cloud Technology Endowed Assistant Professor. I earned my Ph.D. and M.Sc. in Computer Science from the University of Washington. I did my Postdoc at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with Michael Stonebraker. I completed my undergraduate education at St. Petersburg ITMO University (ACM-ICPC World Champions 7 times). Before that I graduated from Presidential Physics/Mathematics Lyceum #239.

I also spent some time working in industry to apply my research - At IBM Almaden Research Center on Data Integration (project Clio, productized as a part of IBM Infosphere); at Google on Web-search and Large-scale Machine Learning (productized as parts of SETI and Froogle); at Microsoft Research on Natural Language Processing (productized as a part of Bing!).
