I am a Senior Lecturer at the Optimisation research group of the Faculty of Information Technology of Monash University.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher supervised by Joao Marques-Silva and then a researcher at the Reason Lab, Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon, working on various topics related to computing and reasoning with SAT oracles, among many other problem areas.

I did my Ph.D. (candidate of physico-mathematical sciences in Russia) under the supervision of Alexander A. Semenov at Matrosov Institute for System Dynamics and Control Theory, a research institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences. My thesis was about combining conflict-driven clause learning (CDCL) with binary decision diagrams (BDDs) done in parallel.

Currently, my research is mainly focused on the development and improvement of highly efficient SAT- and SMT-based (satisfiability modulo theories) decision and optimization procedures targeting a variety of important practical applications in AI: from software package upgradability and Boolean formula minimization to model-based diagnosis (MBD), software fault localization and eXplainable AI (XAI).
