On Santa Monica pier
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:
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.”
