About Me

I am an RnD person dealing with experimental technologies and prospecitve system architectures. I am interested in cutting edge projects devoted to systems research: persistent systems (NV-RAM-based) and system security (Intel SGX, CHERI, microkernels). Currently, I am an Advanced Research Fellow in the Large-Scale Data and Systems (LSDS) group of Imperial College London under the supervision of Prof. Peter Pietzuch.

I received Engineering degree from the Cybernetic department of National Research Nuclear University MEPhI (former Moscow Engineering Physics Institute). Also, I received Masters degree from the institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge (ISSEK) of High School of Economics (HSE). I obtained my PhD from TU Braunschweig under supervising of Prof. Dr. Rüdiger Kapitza. Prior joining TU Braunschweig and Imperial, I was leading for six years the R&D company "ksys labs" involved in technology transfer, applied research, and experimental development in the area of systems security, in particular, microkernel-based operating systems.
