I am a 4th-year PhD student at Columbia Business School, where I do research on applied machine learning. My primary interest is in designing robust, scalable autonomous intelligent systems and agents capable of optimal action to advance specified business objectives. I am also interested in a set of topics beyond machine learning, such as legal and ethical issues of AI use in business settings; systematic principles behind creation of successful new ventures; issues of human motivation system.
I hold an MS in Operations Research (MS&E) from Stanford University (2016) and a BS in International Relations and Business from Taras Shevchenko University (2012). While at Stanford, I worked as a research assistant at Stanford Intelligent Systems Laboratory (SISL) of Aeronautics and Astronautics Department, under Prof. Mykel J. Kochenderfer, doing research on deep reinforcement learning. Prior to that, in 2013-2014, I spent a year working for BlackRock Global Client Insights team.
