About

My name is Ilya (see this YouTube video for pronounciation) and I am a Civic Technologist at Connecticut Data Collaborative. I am fascinated by big data, machine intelligence, data visualization, and open source. My life-long goal is to promote data-driven decisions among all.

I graduated from Trinity College, CT in 2018 with a double major in Computer Science and Studio Arts. I spent a year abroad at Oxford where I studied machine learning, AI, and data visualization.

You can send me an email, find me on GitHub, connect with me on LinkedIn, or follow me on Twitter.
