Raisa is a Research Associate at the Alan Turing Institute working on the Enhancing Security and Privacy of National Identity Systems project.

She graduated with a PhD in Computer Science from Royal Holloway, University of London. Her research was devoted to the problem of competitive prediction, which is an area of online machine learning, where one provides guarantees compared to other predictive models. In her thesis she developed new online competitive algorithms for probabilistic prediction and proved theoretical bounds on their performance.
