Date of birth – 16 of December 1983. Education: 2000-2005 – Faculty of Biology, Lomonosov Moscow State University. The name of my PhD Thesis – “Vocal indicators of individuality and sex in birds without external sexual dimorphism” (2008). Since 2003 I’m the member of Crane and Geese Working Groups of Eurasia and since 2009 – also the member of Birds Conservation Union of Russia.

 


RESEARCH

The main scientific interests: vocal communication of birds, individual and sex features in the calls of birds without external sexual dimorphism, individual vocal monitoring of rare species and social organization of colonial birds.

Current research projects:

1. Individual variability of birds’ calls. Development of individual vocal monitoring of rare bird species in nature.

2. Vocal sex determination in birds without external sexual dimorphism.

3. Study of vocal, visual and olfactory communication behavior and social organization of marine colonial birds.

4. Sound library of mammalian and bird species.
