Currently, he is completing his PhD at IDLab - the Internet and Data Laboratory (https://idlab.technology/), a collaboration between the University of Antwerp, University of Ghent and imec.
His doctoral research focuses on the intersection of computer science and sports science, specifically on using data to enhance athlete performance. His work, for example, includes determining the age at which professional cycling athletes achieve peak performance, offering valuable insights for sports scientists and practitioners. In addition to his academic pursuits, Leonid is actively involved in promoting interdisciplinary collaboration. He organizes the BOSA school (https://sportsdatascience.be/BOSA2024), which brings together data scientists and sports scientists to innovate and improve practices in the sports industry.
Furthermore, Leonid is a co-founder of Ripply (https://www.ripply.net/), a company committed to leveraging open innovation and data competitions to maximize the value of data for organizations. He is also the content curator for Data Makers Fest (www.datamakersfest.com).
