Born in 1983 in Moscow, Russia. M.Sc. degree at Faculty of Biology of Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU) in 2005. Since 2008 works as a researcher in the Department of Vertebrate Zoology of the Faculty of Biology MSU. Member of A.M.Nikolsky’s Herpetological Society.


RESEARCH

I’m engaged in conducting research on the following themes:

- homing behaviour in adult frogs and toads (especially the marsh frog, Rana ridibunda, and the common toad, Bufo bufo)

- chemosensory orientation of juvenile frogs and toads near the native pond.

At present I work at my Ph.D thesis “Spatial orientation of amphibians belonging to terrestrial and semiaquatic ecological groups” (scientific supervisor - assoc. prof. Sergei V. Ogurtsov).

I’m the author and co-author of 9 publications.


TEACHING ACTIVITIES

Currently I am engaged in teaching the following courses: General Practice in Vertebrate Anatomy, Special Practice in Vertebrate Anatomy, Data Analysis in Biological Research, Summer Field Practice on Vertebrate Zoology at Zvenigorod Biological station.
