Having completed my PhD studies, I joined Robert Bosch as a research scientist. I started my PhD research in Robert Bosch GmbH in March 2017 and joined the Örebro University Mobile Robotics and Olfaction Lab in January 2018. The topic of my research is prediction of human motion in social spaces for service robots. I received my M.Sc. in Computer Science at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, Germany, working during the studies as a research assistant at the Social Robotics Laboratory. I received the B.Sc. degree in Applied Mathematics and Informatics in the Moscow National Research University Higher School of Economics.

Research Interests

The topic of my PhD research and the consequent interest is human motion prediction and predictive planning for service robots. To this end I study algorithms for long-term (10+ seconds) trajectory prediction in social and urban spaces. This includes e.g. MDP-based uncertainty- and map-aware trajectory forecasting and human-human interactions modelling under social grouping constraints.

Furthermore, I am interested in the general range of problems and solutions in the motion prediction settings, e.g. motion modelling for various types of agents, motion goal inference and intention recognition, semantics of the static and dynamic environment, human-aware robot task and motion planning, imitation and reinforcement learning. In a broader sense, my interests expand to human-robot interaction, human-oriented, collaborative and service robotics.
