I joined Facebook AI Research (FAIR) as a Research Engineer in 2016. I received a Master’s degree with distinction in Computer Science from St.Petersburg State University with Prof. Oleg N. Granitchin in 2005, and completed my Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics with Prof. Florence Forbes, Prof. Stephane Girard and Prof. Radu Horaud in 2010, working on statistical models for audio-visual person detection and tracking. I spent two years as a PostDoc in Human-Robot Interaction with Dr. Jean-Marc Odobez at Idiap Research Institute and continued as a Senior Research Engineer at Idiap Research Institute.
