Me I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Artificial Intelligence at University of Bath, UK.

Prior to this I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Machine learning group at University of Oxford.

I completed my PhD degree at the University of Sheffield. The PhD thesis is selected for Springer Thesis series. I have a specialist degree (equal to MS) in Applied Mathematics and System Programming from Lomonosov Moscow State University.

My research interests are in machine learning, including such topics as Bayesian modelling, deep learning, reinforcement learning, crowdsourcing, topic modeling and sparse modelling.

I was a top reviewer at NeurIPS 2019-2020 and ICML 2019-2020.
