I graduated from Saint-Petersburg State University with MSc in Applied Mathematics in 2009, and did my PhD in Computer Science and Engineering at University of Aizu in 2011-2014. My early research focused on mathematical modeling of intermittent motor control in human operators. In 2015, I joined the Department of Psychology, National University of Ireland Galway to study response dynamics of decision making. In 2017, I returned to University of Aizu to investigate how decision making and motor behavior influence each other. I joined AiTech in June 2019; here I aim to understand how human drivers make decisions during simple traffic interactions, and investigate how this understanding can help us to improve coordination between autonomous vehicles and human drivers.
