Oleg Sysoev

Senior Associate Professor

My responsibilities are teaching at various levels, research and also support and development of the Master's program "Statistics and Machine Learning".

I am working as a university lecturer in Statistics at the Division of Statistics and Machine Learning, Department of Computer Science. My responsibilities are teaching at various levels, research and also support and development of the master program "Statistics and Data mining".

I was born in Crimea and then moved to continental Russia where I got a master degree in Applied Mathematics with profile System Programming. Afterwards, I got a doctoral position in Statistics at the Linköpings University and graduated in 2010 by producing thesis "Monotonic regression for large multivariate datasets".

Before coming to Sweden I also worked as a senior customer support engineer at the NetCracker technology.

Research interest

My research interests are monotonic regression and interpolation, data mining and machine learning methods (primarily decision trees, kernel smoothing, neural networks), data mining and machine learning in public health, bootstrap methods, computational statistics, optimization.
