I am a computational linguistics PhD student at UW Linguistics
I have a bachelor's degree from UW CSE (2014).
I currently TA for Intro to Syntax for Computational Linguistics
The next Seattle musical performance that I am going to is
Don Giovanni at Seattle Opera on October 22.
This famous Mozart's opera fascinates me by being very modern,
despite the fact that it was written in 18th century.
My favorite Don Giovanni is Mariusz Kwiecien
(he sort of does Johnny Depp there.)
Also, here's a fantastic review of a recent Chicago production,
written by a good friend of mine.
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.
