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 the chemical composition of magmatic rocks and their 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 graduation, I studied the active volcanoes of Kamchatka for several years as a researcher at 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 the 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, at Université Grenoble Alpes (France), I am studying (both analytically and experimentally) the current olivine-based thermometers and hygrometers, trying to improve the accuracy of the 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), the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the University of Tasmania (Hobart, Australia), and Rutgers University (New Brunswick, New Jersey). I have done experimental work at Washington University in St. Louis (Missouri), and the Vernadsky Institute of Geochemistry and Analytical Chemistry (Moscow, Russia).
