I received my Ph.D. from Skoltech, under the supervision of Victor Lempitsky. During my Ph.D., I also worked at Samsung AI Center, where, for last two years, I led a team focused on human head avatars.
For my doctoral thesis, I primarily leveraged generative modeling of in-the-wild data for the task of one- and few-shot synthesis of human avatars.
My current research interests revolve around 3D reconstruction of dynamic scenes using in-the-wild data. The aim is to use physics simulation and physics-based rendering as priors to both improve the accuracy of reconstructions, and to make them readily available for use in downstream applications.
