a visiting Scientist and Technical Co-Leader at the Northeasten University (Boston, MA).
Have designed and programmed image processing and target tracking algorithms.
Software: Borland C++5, Delphi 3.0; O/S: Windows 95.
Based on results of the pilot project, the University was given a full-scale research grant.
1/1995 - 9/1998 -
the Chief Scientist in the "RT" (Recognition Technologies) scientific agency. Have designed and
programmed a complete technology (image processing algorithms and software) for fingerprint recognition.
Managed embedding the algorithms into a standalone prototype. Software: Turbo C, Borland Pascal; O/S: MS DOS, Windows 95.
The PC-based prototype proved to be superior to fingerprint recognition products available
at the world market at the time.
The agency demonstrated the fingerprint recognizer at security and computer expositions
in Moscow and received the partnership and licensing proposals from several companies including
Samsung (Korea), ElectroLux (Sweden), several commercial banks and multiple retailers
9/1992 - 12/1994

speech animation algorithms. Software: Turbo Pascal 7.0, Turbo C; O/S: MS DOS.
Demonstrated team capabilities to design high-tech products.
The agency signed a long-term partnership agreement with leading software and hardware engineering
companies in Russia and received a contract for software development from other partners.
- an Expert
in Soviet-American JV "Dialogue" (Moscow). Have developed a statistical
system "ARCaDa" for PCs. Performed statistical research.
Software: SyStat, SPSS, Turbo Pascal 5.5, Fortran; O/S: MS DOS.
8/1988 - 9/1990
- a Senior
Scientist at the Institute of Professional Diseases (Moscow). Have designed and
implemented a general statistical package for PDP-11 clone computers (PL: Fortran, O/S: RSX/RT-11).
- a working
Student, then Junior Scientist at the Institute of Transplantology
and Artificial Organs (Moscow). Have developed the system for pattern recognition and
