I did my Bachelor and Master studies at Novosibirsk State University and Free University of Bozen-Bolzano. I obtained PhD in Computer Science from Free University of Bozen-Bolzano in 2014, where Diego Calvanese was my scientific advisor. I was a Research Associate at Imperial College London in the VAS group led my Alessio Lomuscio. I joined University of Kent in 2021 as a lecturer.  

Research interests

I belong to the following research groups:

My current research interest is in designing, studying and optimising hybrid neural-symbolic architectures for AI applications ranging from efficient query answering over Knowledge Graph to verification of systems with neural network components. Previously I have worked on accessing data using ontologies and on studying novel databases.
