I am currently a Machine Learning Research Scientist at Megagon Labs.
In 2017-2022 I was a Machine Learning Manager at Amazon working on Machine Learning and Information Retrieval aplications for Amazon Alexa.
I hold a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Chicago where I was advised by Risi Kondor. My PhD work focused on applying harmonic analysis
to matrix factorizations and large graphs drawing on ideas from functional analysis, numerical linear algebra & randomized algorithms.
I have experience applying Machine Learning to graph and knowledge graphs, signal & audio processing
tasks, text-based and natural language processing tasks. Prior to graduate school, I received a BA from Colgate University,
where I studied molecular biology and computer science and had an opportunity to work at the NIH. I grew up in Bulgaria.
