About me

I am a PhD student in the University of Waterloo, working with Edith Law and Charlie Clarke. I was born in a small Russian town - Maykop and studied at Southern Federal University in Rostov-on-Don, Russia.

Research Interests

I am interested in exploring people's behaviour when interacting with conversational assistants, and learning how we can improve user experience. In a collaboration with different people, we have investigated user language for open ended-exploratory search and, more recently, for the task of cooking a culinary recipe.
