Started as A.A. Kirillov's student in rerpresentation theory in Moscow State University. Got PhD in 1999. Worked in ITEP Moscow for 10 years somewhere in between representation theory, integrable systems and algebraic geometry, in particular geometric Lanlgands and its connection to Hitchin-Gaudin integrable systems.
Currently in industry: quantitative finance, previously in wireless telecommunication doing applied math.: information theory, error-correcting codes, statistical estimation theory, numerical algorithms.
Deeply worried about the ITEP very unfortunate situation: http://saveitep.org

Leading Russian research center is in danger. More than 850 scientists signed letter to president and prime-minister asking for help. Fields medalists M. Atiyah, L. Lafforgue, E. Witten, Nobel Prize winner D. Gross, mathematicians A. Beilinson, I. Cherednik, B. Dubrovin, P. Etingof, B. Feigin, A. Kirillov, I. Krichever, N. Reshetikhin, E. Vinberg, physicists J. Cardy (Oxford), M. Douglas, J. Froehlich, J. Maldacen (IAS), N. Nekrasov(IHES, ITEP), B. de Wit, are among them.

I worked in ITEP more than 10 years, I learned a lot from these people and it is really one the best institutes in Russia and world. Like many colleagues I am really afraid that current situation is step by step programm of killing ITEP. Last year newly instead director made from research institute "GULAG-light" as said Prof. Stan Brodsky from Stanford said after seeing all this.
