Recipient of Moscow Government Award for Young Scientists and Russian President Scholarship, Alexey obtained his Specialist Diploma in Computer Science from the Bauman Moscow State Technical University (BMSTU) in 2010, and his Candidate of Sciences degree in Mathematics from the Institute for Information Transmission Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IITP RAS) in 2012. His thesis focused on investigation of error-correcting capabilities of non-binary low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes and application of such codes for multiple-access channels. During the following four years, Alexey did research internship at the Ulm University (Germany), Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL, Switzerland), University of Maryland (USA) and Israel Institute of Technology (Technion, Israel) which resulted in joint publications in leading journals on information and coding theory. Since 2013, Alexey is Senior Researcher at IITP Laboratory for Transmission, Protection and Analysis of Information. In 2015, Alexey was a deputy project leader of a joint project of Huawei and IITP RAS on investigation and development of error-correcting codes for future 5G physical layer.
