I am currently working with Dr. Alexander Vorbrugg on the “Russia’s New Forests: Assembling and Governing a Resource Frontier” project as a Research Assistant.

At the same time, I’m pursuing my master’s studies in Sustainable Development at the University of Basel. I have five years of extensive practical experience in economics and resource management, aiming to find effective business strategies, while keeping a positive environmental and social impact. I worked closely with regulatory structures, interpreting laws for transparent reports and accountant systems in Russia. I came to study in Switzerland to extend my knowledge in Sustainable Development, with particular attention on Society, Economy and Environment.

My interest in research focuses on three domains:

1.     Sustainable land use and new forestry models.
2.     Circular economy and resource management.
3.     Environmental crisis and societal change.
