I moved, and now I am a lecturer in statistics at the
University of
Brighton, but you can still contact me via the address above as
I remain an honorary fellow
of Computer Learning Research Centre.
I was a postdoctoral researcher in the
Department of Computer Science
at Royal Holloway, University of London
in 20072011.
I worked with Volodya Vovk on EPSRC project
Practical Competitive Prediction.
My main research interest is sequential online learning,
including prediction with expert advice, kernel methods, statistical learning,
universal inductive inference; I also worked on topological methods
in pattern recognition.
I am also interested in
Kolmogorov complexity and algorithmic foundations for probability theory,
reinforcement learning, and learning in the limit.
I obtained PhD in mathematics in 2003 from Moscow State University
(Department
of Mathematical Logic and Theory of Algorithms).
My thesis is on semantics for propositional logic with the help of
Kolmogorov complexity,
supervisor prof. Vereshchagin.
Then I worked with Jürgen
Schmidhuber in IDSIA
(Lugano, Switzerland) and with
Alexander Shen in
LIF (Marseilles, France).
In 20112012, I was a postdoc in the
Department
of Mathematical Sciences at Durham University.
In 20122014, I was a lecturer in Mathematics at the University of
Bedfordshire.
