I have always been interested in both physics and computer science. As I
enrolled in Moscow Institute for Physics and Technology (MIPT) I
sometimes dreamed of being able to simulate a macroscopic object from
the quark level up. Another topic I am very interested in is machine
learning. As part of getting my degree I studied and worked at Joint
Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR). After graduating in 2011 I
continued working at JINR and started my PhD there. At the same time I
shifted focus from physics to IT. Most of my work done at JINR is
related to WLCG, CERN and monitoring. I took part in Tier3 monitoring,
XRootD federation monitoring and data transfer monitoring projects.
Right now I am involved in an effort to integrate HBase and Hadoop as a
Dashboard back-end and use it for data transfer monitoring.
