I recently started as a Cloud Technology Endowed Professor at University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). I am interested in Large-scale data management (Big data), Cloud Computing, and Web search.

Earlier I was a Postdoc at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) with Michael Stonebraker. I earned my PhD and MSc in Computer Science from the University of Washington and completed my undergraduate education at St. Petersburg ITMO University (ACM-ICPC World Champions 6 times). Before that I graduated from Presidential Physics/Mathematics Lyceum #239.

Before MIT I was working at IBM Almaden Research Center on Data Integration (project Clio, productized as a part of IBM Infosphere); at Google on Web-search and Large-scale Machine Learning (productized as parts of SETI and Froogle); at Microsoft Research on Natural Language Processing (productized as a part of Bing).
My Erdos number is 3.
