I'm Kirill Brodt (Кирилл Бродт). I was born in the Soviet Union in 1991 and grew up in Almaty, Kazakhstan. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Novosibirsk State University, Akademgorodok, Russia in 2013. In 2013 – 2015, I participated in a double diplôma program between the Novosibirsk State University and grandes écoles in France. I studied numerical methods of solving Maxwell's equations in metamaterials at École nationale supérieure de techniques avancées ParisTech, Palaiseau, France (promo 2015). I graduated with a master's degree with honor from Novosibirsk State University in 2015. Then, in 2016 – 2018, I studied machine learning at Yandex School of Data Analysis and Computer Science Center (transcript). In 2020 – 2021, I studied data engineering in MADE Big Data Academy.
I started my PhD at the Université de Montréal, Montréal, Canada in 2019. Currently my research interest is computer vision from sketching in computer graphics.
Previously, I was working on the quality of virtual assistant. Before, I worked in the area of CAD systems, developing numerical methods of thermal radiation and automatic exploded view in Bricsys.
See some of my projects.
I am also involved in an educational program of Computer Science Center, where I teach Machine Learning and Deep Learning courses. I am a research supervisor of undergraduate students and bachelor's theses.
I did some competitive machine learning. See my top-ranked solutions.
I mostly write code in Python. I had an experience with C++ and Haskell.
