Research Interests
Representation theory, integrable systems, algebraic geometry, mathematical aspects of string theory and quantum field theory.

My current research is focused on the interaction between enumerative algebraic geometry, geometric representation theory and integrable systems. In general I work on physical mathematics which nowadays represents a large part of modern math. A significant amount of problems that are studied by mathematicians comes from string/gauge theory.

In 2020 I was awarded AMS-Simons grant

I am currently on the job market for tenure track faculty positions

Workshops Organization
Zoom workshop Elliptic Integrable Systems (March 7-9th 2021)

PhD: University of Minnesota (2012) [My PhD Thesis]
During my Minnesota years I mostly worked on physics of gauge theories with extended supersymmetry in various dimensions.
I was a Graduate Fellow at Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics in Spring 2012.

MS: Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (2008) [Paper 0901.4347 is based on my master thesis]
BS: Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (2006) [Paper 0712.1136 is based on my bachelor diploma]
At Phystech I did undergraduate research at the Institute for Theoretical and Experimental Physics as well as at the Institute for Nuclear Research.
The former together with the Independent University of Moscow taught me math, at the latter I learned some physics.

Other Teaching Activities
I teach math to school kids at the Berkeley Math Circle and at Stanford Math Circle
I serve as a mentor at Hermiona Education which helps grade school students with choosing their higher eduation in the US
In Summer 2019 I tought at Sichuan Univeristy, Chengdu, China as a part of Lion education program. Slides of my public lecture on black holes and entanglement.

I enjoy doing endurance sports: biking, running (my last marathon), cross country skiing.
