Greetings, Bonjour, Вітаю, День Добрый !

Professional background:
I'm a Senior Data Scientist with a quarter-century of experience working with the Canadian Government on problems related to public safety and security. I worked at the National Research Council of Canada, where I developed video analysis solutions for  Canadarm and initiated the development of one of Canada's pioneering Video Recognition Systems. Subsequently, I worked at the Canada Border Services Agency, where I worked as a Principal Investigator as well as  a Manager (bilingual position, for 5 years)  on the development and evaluation of Artificial Intelligence and Data Science solutions for Automated Border Control applications, in particular, those related to Face Recognition, Video Analytics, and other Biometrics technologies. 

Academic background: 
I studied Data Science and Artificial Intelligence first at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics, Dimploma Cum Laude) and then at Glushkov's Institute of Cybernetics of Ukrainian Academy of Sciences (Ph.D. in Mathematics) and the University of Alberta (Ph.D. in Computing Science). I’ve been Adjunct Professor at University of Ottawa (School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and  Department of Mathematics and Statistics), École de technologie supérieure d'Université du Québec (Laboratoire d’imagerie, de vision et d’intelligence artificielle), University of Dalhousie (Computer Science Department). I supervised over 30 undergraduate and graduate students. I've authored several award-winning scientific papers and inventions, including the Nouse® (Nose as Mouse) Intelligent Vision Interface, which was featured world-wide and acquired as an artefact by the Canada Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa, received some Academic and Government awards, including "Outstanding Scientific Achievement" award from the National Research Council of Canada and the Cultural Diversity Leadership award from University of Alberta," and named the "Leader of Tomorrow" by the Partnership Group for Science and Engineering of the Royal Academy of Sciences of Canada.

Apart of Science, I did competitive gymnasticscomposed music, translated poetry. I am the father of four children, two of whom received  the Governor General's Academic Medal, which is the highest Academic Excellence Award in Canada. Their names are now listed in the Governor General website:  here and here.

New developments since 2021: 
As part of Data Science training,I worked on the development of several Web Apps designed to visualize critical official data of high interest to Canadians. This included Open Canada Deaths Tracker App, which was built in the end of 2021 following the implementation of vaccination mandates. This App exposed alarming statistics related to the significant increase of deaths among Canadians, in particular among children, starting exactly from the time when vaccinations have been mandated. This prompted me to become an avid advocate for an open discussion related to this observed phenomenon and its relationship to the War in Ukraine.
This is when I started writing my blogs in  Substack (IVIM Newsletter) and when I also started actively using social platforms to seek for truth about what is happening in Canada and the world. This is also when I started to put more time into artistic and musical projects.
One of these projects resulted in writing a song called  "Who can tell me the truth? (An Anthem for the new generation)" which has been later used to raise the awareness about the tragic increase of sudden deaths among young Canadians since January 2022.

About IVIM:
IVIM is the company that we've founded with my wife in 2007 to support the Nouse technology. Later it has become the platform for sharing the Web Apps that I've built and the songs that I've composed. It is also used for supporting community projects, some of which have been featured on national and regional channels, e.g., here and here).
