Lead Data Scientist


Currently, I am a Lead Data Scientist at Zwift, working on multiple data science initiatives, most notably a collaborative filtering recommendation model designed to offer personalized training and route suggestions for users, drawing from their historical time-series data.

Prior to Zwift, I was at InsideTracker, working to integrate blood biomarkers and DNA data with physiological data from activity trackers to improve lifestyle recommendations and discover new patterns and optimal zones in sleep, heart rate, and blood biomarkers.

I have always been passionate about teaching and explaining complex concepts in simple terms. During my PhD, I developed and taught a course “R and its application in bioinformatics”. In 2013, this course was the first R course taught in Russia and was very popular among students. Since then, I taught R to students and professionals, in groups and individually. I am an RStudio Certified Instructor in tidyverse and teach at posit Academy.
