My focus is on AI-driven interaction between automated vehicles, people inside of automated vehicles and other road users. During 2018-2022 I was postdoctoral researcher in the Human-Robot Interaction group at the department of Cognitive Robotics of TU Delft. My focus was on Human Factors of communication between automated vehicles and vulnerable road users (pedestrians, cyclists). I am a big advocate of open science (hence this website hosted on GitHub) and I volunteered as a data champion of the 3mE faculty of TU Delft. I joined TU Delft in August 2014 to work within the HFAuto project as a Marie Curie Fellow. During my PhD, my aim was to develop a human-machine interface for highly automated driving, focusing on the auditory modality. I defended my PhD in December 2018. Before starting my PhD on human factors, I was doing something completely different. I concluded Erasmus Mundus Double MSc in Dependable Software Systems with double distinction at the University of St Andrews (Scotland) and Maynooth University (Ireland) in 2014. I wrote two dissertations within this degree where I evaluated the implications of porting a strongly-encapsulated programming language Insense to multi-core systems and the impact of the cache on multi-threaded data-sharing applications. I enrolled in the BSc course in Computer Science at the National University of “Kyiv-Mohyla Academy” (Ukraine). After the 1st year of the course, I decided to experience international mobility and transferred to a BEng programme in Information Technology at Mikkeli University of Technology (Finland). I concluded the degree in 2012, specialising in Software Engineering. In my thesis, I focused on the development of a customisable multitenant web form for the bioenergy sector. After my MSc, I decided to switch my research focus and enrolled in the PhD project on automated driving, as I was looking for a more hands-on area that has a direct impact on our world and great potential to save millions of people. I like to be active and engage in interesting projects. During 2018–2021, I was a director of data science research at SD-Insights. I was a chair (2017–2021) and a vice-chair (2021–2022) of the Bridging Science and Business (BSB) working group of Marie Curie Alumni Association (MCAA). I was also a chair (2015–2017) and a vice-chair (2017–2019) of the BeNeLux chapter of MCAA. I am currently a member of the board with a position of the treasurer of the association (since 2022). I was a member of the Capacity building task-force of (ESAA) (2018–2019), a board member of the Eurasian chapter (2017–2019), a member of the Communications and Course Quality Advisory Board (2017–2018) teams, and a director of Research and Innovation (R&I) unit (2019–2021) of Erasmus Mundus Association (EMA).
