I obtained my M.Sc. from Higher Chemical College RAS (Moscow) in 2010. After that I did my Ph.D. in prof. Ananikov group (ZIOC RAS, Moscow). The main project was related to mechanistic investigations of metal-catalyzed alkyne-thiol coupling reactions. I received my Ph.D. in 2013 and continued working as a research associate in the same group for 2013-2016. I've been leading a range of different projects involving organometallic chemistry, diffusion NMR, MRI, photoredox catalysis and 3D printing. In summer 2016 I joined Prof. Cronin group as a postdoctoral research associate where I'm working towards evolution of automation in chemistry.

My personal scope of interests outside laboratory includes Linux administration, electronics, potholing and metalworking.
