About me


My name is Serhii Hamotskyi, I was born in Kyiv, Ukraine, currently living and working in Leipzig (Germany). I work in the area of Machine Learning (mostly Natural Language Processing), especially as applied to automated document processing.

Life story

Currently I’m working at Anhalt University of Applied Sciences, before that I worked as Machine Learning Engineer at ExB Research & Development GmbH.

I finished my B.Sc. in Computer Science at Hochschule Merseburg, Germany, and got my Bachelor’s in Software Engineering from Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, as part of a double-diploma program.

After some years of full-time work I decided that I want a masters degree, the logical place would’ve been the same university I was working at - so since October 2022 I’m a master student (Data Science) there, and working part-time till I finish.


Pretty much everything. You can get a good idea of what I like to read about from this website, but the two main ones were always computers and languages. My current area (ML / NLP) is directly at the intersection of both and I’m happy :)

I’m interested in language and languages in general, psychology and influence, previously also information security. I care about privacy, open source, and dislike companies which I perceive to be damaging to any of them.

See projects for some of the things I did.
