I am a classically trained igneous petrologist currently working for Institut des Sciences de la Terre (ISTerre), Université Grenoble Alpes in Grenoble, France. I use chemical composition of magmatic rocks and its minerals to understand: 1) magma generation at depth, 2) magma evolution during its ascent through the Earth’s crust 3) magma eruption (volcanic activity) to the Earth’s surface.

I received my Diploma (Master of Science equivalent) in Geology from Moscow State University (Russia) where I worked under the supervision of Dr. Alexey Yaroshevsky. After the graduation I studied active volcanoes of Kamchatka for several years as a researcher in the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Kamchatka, Russia) working with Dr. Alexey Ozerov. In 2016 I received my Ph.D. from Rutgers University (New Brunswick, New Jersey) studying the significance of trace elements compositions of olivine grains with Dr. Claude Herzberg. From 2016 to 2019 I was a post-doctoral fellow at Washington University in St. Louis (Missouri) and at University of Nevada, Reno (Nevada) studying experimentally the role and behavior of magmatic volatiles with Drs. Michael Krawczynski and Philipp Ruprecht. In 2019-2020 I worked as a senior researcher at Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Moscow, Russia) studying experimentally how the radionuclides diffuse through the pore water of crystalline rocks. Now, as a postdoc at Université Grenoble Alpes (France) working with Dr. Alex Sobolev, I am studying (both analytically and experimentally) the current olivine-based thermometers and hygrometers, trying to improve an accuracy of those petrological techniques.

I have done field-work on such volcanoes as Tolbachik, Klyuchevskoy, Bezymyanny, Shiveluch, Gorely, Mutnovsky, Karymsky in Kamchatka, Russia; Mount Shasta, California; Mount St. Helens, Washington; and Etna in Sicily, Italy. I have done analytical work at the Vernadsky Institute of Geochemistry and Analytical Chemistry (Moscow, Russia), University of Alaska Fairbanks, University of Tasmania (Hobart, Australia), Rutgers University (New Brunswick, New Jersey). I have done experimental work at Washington University in St. Louis (Missouri), the Vernadsky Institute of Geochemistry and Analytical Chemistry (Moscow, Russia).
