I started Assistant Adjunct Professor (which means postdoc :)) appointment at UCLA Department of Mathematics in July'18. My postdoc mentors are Deanna Needell and Terence Tao.
Some pages from my academic story include:
I study large, often high dimensional objects in the presence (or with the help of) randomness. These "objects" sometimes come from the math world - such as, random matrices or tensors, or being motivated by applications - such as, linear systems or large collections of complex data.
In Fall 2020, I am teaching Math 164 (Optimization) remotly. I am using CCLE webpages to post all the information and assignments. If you are my student, make sure to subscribe your emial for CCLE announcements!
Back in Moscow, I worked as a calculus instructor for high school students at 57-th math school (2008-2012) and as an algebra teacher at Kolmogorov math and physics high school (2012-2013).
I like all versions of my name: please call me Liza, Lisa, Eliza, or Elizabeth, whatever you like the best. In case you were curious, Elizaveta is pronounced as "Ye (like in yellow) - lee - zah - VYE - tah". Standard pronunciation of Liza is "LEE - zuh".
In addition to doing research and explaining math, I enjoy coding and playing with data. Back in Moscow, I completed two year CS program in Yandex Data Analysis school, and it was such a great time. Nowadays I infrequently participate in online contests alone or with friends.
My other interests include all that I find beautiful or challenging. For example, songs, art, cities, mountains, cats, puzzles... Finally, I love talking to people, sharing experiences and drinking coffee - dark roast preferrable.
“Poirot,” I said. “I have been thinking.”
“An admirable exercise my friend. Continue it.”
