Alexey is a Google Brain resident based in Amsterdam. He joined the residency programme after spending several years in industry working on computational advertising, and after obtaining a doctorate degree in Bioinformatics from the Delft University of Technology, where he used computational methods to study sequence determinants of protein synthesis. During that time Alexey developed a broad interest in machine learning, but was primarily exposed to its applications. He is excited about switching to the research side of machine learning and views the residency as an opportunity to work on topics he would not otherwise be exposed to. Alexey’s current research interests lie at the intersection of ML Fairness and generative models, but he’s always excited to talk about biology and genetics!
