I'm interested in using machine learning and software engineering to accelerate economic growth and improve quality of life. I'm particularly interested in technologies that democratize access to services and enable others to create products.

To accomplish that, I believe we need a better framework for making algorithmic decisions under uncertainty. I'm currently researching this idea on the intersection of reinforcement learning, machine learning and game theory.

I also have a background in international relations and student journalism – I'm still figuring out how to explore these interests while pursuing a technical career. I was born in Russia, lived in Switzerland and now live in the United States.
