About Me

I’m currently working as a Research Associate at New York University (Tandon) in Visualization and Data Analytics Lab (ViDA). This is also where I acquired my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science under the supervision of Prof. Claudio Silva.

I come from the City of Lviv, a cultural center of Ukraine, where I was studying at the Physics and Mathematics Lyceum of Lviv (LPML). In 2010, I moved to the capital to pursue my Bachelor’s (2014) and Master’s (2016) degrees in Physics from the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv (KNU), Ukraine. During my studies, I have done multiple internships in French Laboratoire de Physique Nucléaire et de Hautes Energies (LPNHE) at UPMC, Paris. Afterward, I moved to New York to do my Ph.D.

At NYU, I was working on a variety of projects spanning from software development for computer vision/graphics to hardware development for urban sensing and sports tracking. I’m passionate about quality data acquisition and processing and enjoy making things run quickly, so I’ve accumulated a lot of experience programming in highly performant languages such as C/C++ and VHDL. I’m also well-versed in Python for efficient data analysis.

My unique physics background enabled me to tackle problems effectively by jointly developing the hardware and software components of the system. The two major projects I’m currently working on are:

  • LegoTracker - an intelligent modular sports tracking system capable of providing full-skeleton representation of players on a large game field, and
  • Development of a high-speed (1000 scans/sec) 3D geometry scanner with >1 MP resolution based on an analog structured light approach.

Naturally, I want to apply my skills in new domains and I have recently become interested in trading systems for financial markets. I’m open to job opportunities in the finance industry, including blockchain.

In my free time, I like to study foreign languages and volunteer for Razom Ticket project.
