I was born and raised in Russia, where I finished high school and did the A-levels I needed to study in the UK. During both my Bachelors at the University of Warwick and Masters at the University of Oxford, I majored in Statistics. Now I am excited to take a step away from theory and dive into the applications of Statistics and Machine Learning for Healthcare. I am interested in developing Machine Learning methods for Imaging. At the end of my first year of the CDT, I will join Professor F. Gleeson's group for the DPhil stage. This will continue my attempts to use computational methods to improve Healthcare. At Warwick, I worked on identifying nerve structures on MRI scans. For my MSc Dissertation, I explored and compared different ways of uncertainty estimation while predicting the properties of potential drug compounds.
