I am an applied mathematician working on convex and nonsmooth problems that mostly come from optimisation.
Before joining the School of Mathematics and Statistics of UNSW Sydney in 2018 I was an ARC DECRA Research Fellow at RMIT University and held postdoctoral positions at the The University of Melbourne, Federation University Australia and University of Évora. I got my undergraduate degree from from St-Petersburg State University and my PhD is from the City University of Hong-Kong.

Honours level courses
Optimisation for Deep Learning (2020-2021)
This course endorsed by MoCaO special interest group of AustMS is taught via the AMSI ACE network in collaboration with Dr Nadia Sukhorukova (Swinburne University of Technology) and Dr Julien Ugon (Deakin University).
The goal is to provide theoretical foundations of the optimisation theory, and apply it to formulate and solve optimisation problems appearing in deep learning models using a range of optimisation techniques. More information is available on the course page http://www.mocao.org/odl/.
