Pavlo Molchanov

Pavlo Molchanov is a distinguished research scientist and team manager at NVIDIA Research. I work in the LPR team led by Jan Kautz, focusing on efficient deep learning and human-centric computer vision. Since 2023, I have been leading a research team dedicated to efficient deep learning, specifically in the areas of model compression, NAS-like acceleration, novel architectures, and adaptive/conditional inference. Currently, we are primary focused on LLM and vision-language models.

I earned my Ph.D. from Tampere University of Technology, Finland in 2014, specializing in signal processing under the supervision of Karen Eguiazarian. Prior to that, I obtained my M.Sc. from the National Aerospace University in Kharkiv, Ukraine. My research centered around radio systems, with a focus on high-order spectrum techniques for signal processing, mentored by Alexander Totsky.
