Prior to joining Google, I worked in the Protege group at Stanford Center for Biomedical Informatics Research. Our team developed an ontology-editing and management platform that is used by hundreds of thousands of users. While at Stanford, I worked in areas of semantic web, ontology development and alignment, and collaborative ontology engineering.
I studied Applied Math in Moscow State University, received my MS in Computer Science from Boston University, and PhD from Northeastern University. For a list of my pre-Google publications, please see my profile on Google Scholar.
