I am technical leader and manager of computer vision group in search driving innovation in visual understanding for Marketplace and Photo Search. My interests lie in using large amounts of weakly/noisy annotated image data to build a visual representation, modeling relationship between textual and image domain, visually similar recommendations, and building scalable user facing visual understanding systems. Prior to joining Facebook I worked in Microsoft and LinkedIn, and got my PhD from Lobachevsky Nizhny Novgorod State University. By building breakthrough computer vision technologies my group empowers several user facing image understanding systems.
