My research interests cover cartography and marine research. In particular I am working on submarine geomorphology of the Mariana Trench, Pacific Ocean.
My technical skills: extensive experience in geoinformatics since 2000. GIS: spatial analysis, modelling, databases, SQL, georeferencing, mapping, ArcGIS, ArcCatalog, ArcMap, ArcView. MapInfo, DIVA-GIS; GeoMedia, AutoCAD Map. RS image processing: Erdas Imagine, ILWIS GIS, ENVI GIS, Idrisi GIS. Statistics (R programming, gnuplot, gretl). Strong experience in LaTeX, BibLaTeX, BibTeX. Compilers: TeX Shop, TeX Works, TeX Live, MacTeX. Bibliography database management (.bib, .bbl formats) in BibLaTeX. Github data sharing, graphics (GIMP). Reference management: Mendeley, Zotero.

My career pathway:
I am a native of Russia, born in Moscow (1980). I gained my BSc in Geography and Cartography with Summa Cum Laude from the Lomonosov Moscow State University in 2004. I was awarded the University Gold Medal for Academic Excellence. I then moved to Europe to continue my education. In 2006 I participated in the ANT/XXIII-4 Antarctic expedition lead by AWI, Germany. The cruise area included Amundsen and Bellingshausen Seas, South Pacific Ocean. I received an MSc in GIS and Earth Observation for Environmental Modelling and Management from the University of Southampton (UK) and University of Twente (Netherlands) in 2011 for the thesis ‘Seagrass mapping and monitoring along the coasts of Crete, Greece’. I continuously had short research stays at various European universities. My visits to the University of Vienna, Lapland, Eötvös Loránd, Tartu, Matej Bel, Brussels, NTU and the Ege University, and studies at TU Dresden and Charles University in Prague were interspersed with attending numerous events. My research concerned GIS/RS based satellite image processing (Landsat TM/ETM+ scenes) for land cover change detection. I have also published on environmental monitoring of the Barents Sea (in Russian language) and seagrass mapping. Some of my papers focus on the aspects of education: methods of teaching GIS and RS (in Russian). My research resulted in over 100 published short papers and communications (posters and presentations) at more than 30 conferences.
I have been awarded research grants by the DAAD, Swiss ESKAS, Erasmus Mundus, ÖAD, CIMO, HSB, ESF, WBI, TÜBİTAK, MOE Taiwan, SAIA and other agencies. I have also held travel grants for participation at the workshops funded by Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (2013) and Maison des Sciences de l’Homme et de l‘Environnement Claude Nicolas Ledoux (2014). My most recent grant is as a PhD Student of the CSC/SOA-funded Marine Scholarship.
Since 2016 I have been studying towards a PhD at the Department of Marine Geo-sciences, Ocean University of China. I have been carrying out research on geostatistical analysis of the deep ocean trenches geomorphology and GIS application towards marine geology. My dissertation work is focused upon understanding variability of factors responsible for the ocean trench formation and comparative analysis of their geomorphic structure. Upcoming work continues investigations of the geology of the Pacific Ocean and the interplay between geomorphic, geological, tectonic and volcanic factors affecting submarine landform formation.
A little bit of my personality:
I consider intensive travelling, exploring the world and diverse cultures as a valuable experience of my life: I visited 37 countries and 254 cities/places worldwide, spent 7 years in Europe, 2 years in China. In 2014 I had a Frequent Traveller Silver Status @Miles & More, Star Alliance awarded by Lufthansa. In my free time I enjoy reading and learning languages: English (IELTS-7.5, 2011), Chinese 汉语 (HSK-5: 汉语水平考试, 2017), German (ÖSD-C2, 2006), French (DALF-C1, 2008), Spanish (DELE-B1, 2008), Italian (CILS-B1, 2007), Arabic (the very beginner, learned in Cairo University, 2013). Besides, I have an interest in history, archaeology and music. I graduated School for Music in Moscow (Piano Faculty, 1995). In 2014 I was assisting my mother (a pianist) to convert audio music files to support her music project on her YouTube channel. In 2013 I participated in two archaeological fieldworks (in Cyprus Island and in Russia). My simple little pleasures: theatres, museums, shopping and coffeehouses in the old cities make me happy. Above all, I love spending time with my family and sharing my hobbies with them.
