I am joining UW Linguistics as a computational linguistics PhD student in September 2014.
I have a bachelor's degree from UW CSE (2014).
The next Seattle musical performance that I am going to is
The 2014-2015 season opening night concert on September 13.
It will be all French music, which our French conductor knows very well.
I was born and grew up in a fantastic place called Akademgorodok near Novosibirsk, Russia. You can see a lot of forest if you zoom out. It is a town built specifically for a University and a number of research institutes. My parents both worked in such institutes, and so did parents of most of my friends, and maybe that's why I decided to become a researcher myself.
