I was born in Moscow, Russia, where I attended schools #1507 and #1543. In 1997, my family moved to the United States, where I graduated from Newton South High School in 2000 and from Harvard College in 2004. Now I am working towards a Ph.D. degree in Physics in the Quantum Optics research group of Mikhail Lukin at Harvard. I do theory. Some of the projects I have worked on are photon storage in atomic ensembles, optical control of single atoms in optical lattices, creation of a repulsive shield between ultracold polar molecules, and ultracold alkaline-earth atoms in optical lattices for quantum computation and quantum simulation.
