I was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia in 1993 and brought up there.
I got my Bachelor (2014) and Master (2016) degrees at Plant physiology and biochemistry department of Saint Petersburg University. My research was devoted to ecological physiology of plants, in particular, rice seedlings resistance to anoxic and oxidative stress. I investigated expression of genes coding for major antioxidant enzymes: catalases and ascorbate-glutathione cycle enzymes.
In 2015, I graduated from Bioinformatics Institute, having completed three projects that involved R and Python coding, and become familiar with UNIX. I assume bioinformatics to be the basis for future biological progress.
The scope of my scientific interest is computational approaches, big data analysis, genetics, biochemistry and physiology.
Although it is obvious for me that nobody is able to know everything, I am keen on learning, which facilitates organizing incoming information. Besides gaining knowledge, I am glad to share it, working as a private teacher.
I am definitely not a couch potato, my tennis partners even consider me a ball of fire. In my free time, I play the guitar, dance Argentinian tango or simply walk and enjoy nature. On vacation, I like hiking or cycling with camping.
