About me

I was born in Russia, but I had my Bachelor, Masters degrees and my Ph.D. in Theoretical Computer Science from ENS Lyon, France. I held teaching and research positions in Belgium and France. After several years spent in academia as an Associate Professor of Computer Science, I moved to the States, where my research interests are distributed computing and natural language processing. Besides the usual university teaching, I also solved Computer Science problems for the entrance exams at Grandes Écoles in France. As my children were growing, I first tried to directly enrich their education on my own. In today’s world, this proved to be harder than I thought. Looking for a better solution, it then quickly became apparent that School Nova was a very good fit for exactly that purpose, for my children and for myself. Nowadays, I volunteer to teach computer science, mathematics, physics and coaching a First Lego League robotics team, The Robosaurus, as well as a Science Olympiads Team.
