I am a mathematician. My present scientific interests include Discrete and Convex Geometry, Extremal Combinatorics. In 2013 I've defended my PhD at Moscow State University under the supervision of Yuri Valentinovich Nesterenko (Ostrowski Prize 1997).

From October of 2015 until September of 2017 I have been a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Mathematics Department at the Technion (host: Rom Pinchasi). From September of 2018 until February of 2019 I was a Visiting Researcher in the DCG group at EPFL (head: János Pach). Now, I hold a Visiting Position at the IMI-BAS, Sofia.

From 2013 to 2023, I was affiliated with the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. The major project there was the Laboratory of Combinatorial and Geometric Structures.

In December 2023, I will join the Department of Mathematics at Emory University as a tenure-track Assistant Professor.
