Hey there 👋🏼
I'm Alex
Data Scientist, AI Researcher, Explorer
Welcome to my personal website! It's currently under active development 🏗️ :)
About me
Born and raised in St Petersburg, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, I have moved around Erurope and North America quite a bit since then. I am currently residing in the United States, somewhere in between Atlanta, New York City, and the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
I love telling stories using data and visualization tools, exploring the hidden patterns in structured and unstructured data, and opening-up the machine learning black boxes. I am currently working on several projects within the Explainable and Interpretable AI domain at Georgia Tech. I am also doing some awesome data science research with my colleagues at YouTube Music.
During winter I try to spend as much time as I can in the mountains slowly advancing my snowboarding skills. On warmer days, I am learning how to row with the Georgia Tech Crew. All year around I am challenging myself doing CrossFit, with a focus on gymnastics and (more recently) Olympic weightlifting.
These are a few of my favorite things:
  • National Park: Glacier, Montana
  • Movie: Interstellar by Christophen Nolan
  • Book: The End of Eternity by Isaac Asimov
  • App: Slopes
  • Messenger Feature: Bubble videos in Telegram
This website
I built this website using Astro web framework using Astrofy template It's hosted on Vercel. I maintain it locally using VSCode and upload changes to GitHub. This whole thing cost me $0 to build and host!
