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.
My favourite applications include dimensionality reduction, randomized algorithms for solving linear systems, corruption detection and dynamic topic modeling.
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.”
