I have a broad area of scientific and industrial interests starting with various applications of data-analytics to complex data-sets and finishing with a phenomenon of financial illiquidity and study of the arising non-linear partial differential equations that are used to model this property. I am currently focused on new approaches to AI and possible connections between neuroscience and computation.
