I was born in Irkutsk (Eastern Siberia, Russia). In 2013 I graduated from Irkutsk State University, the faculty of Biology and Soil Studies as a zoologist. After I started my postgraduate studies in Limnological Institute SB RAS, where I work till now. Presently I prepare my PhD thesis with the theme "Biodiversity and Ecology of Oligochaeta (Annelida) in Lake Baikal Splash Zone". So I mostly deal with Baikal oligochaete worms ecology, systematics, and physiology. Particularly, I work with Enchytraeidae Family representatives.
