Professional biography

In 2009, I moved to the UK and changed my career from full-time teaching to full-time research. A former assistant professor at Russian State Medical Uniersity (Moscow, Russia), now I work as a Visiting Researcher at the OU. Since 2016, I also teach the S827 module "Concept to Clinic".


Research interests

Synthesis, structure and reactivity of Group 14 organoelement compounds.

More detailed outline of my research interests is available from my personal website.
