Oceanologist. In 2011 she graduated from the Faculty of Geography, M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University with a degree in Oceanology, in 2012-2015 she studied at the graduate school of Moscow State University. Since 2012 she has been working in the Laboratory of Experimental Ocean Physics as a junior researcher. Participates in complex expeditionary works in the Black Sea, in 2016 visited the Arctic as a junior researcher hydrophysical team as part of the expedition "Kara Sea-2016". She participated in the organization of such conferences as: "Dynamics of Tidal Seas" (2014, Gelendzhik), "Integrated Research of the World Ocean" (2017, Moscow), "Marine Research and Environmental Management" (2018, Sevastopol).

Scientific interests:

Currently, she is studying coastal upwellings and short-term variability of water dynamics in the northeastern part of the Black Sea. The purpose of the study is to describe the characteristics of the process, to study the impact on coastal ecosystems. In the course of research in the Black Sea in 2012-2015 together with S. Myslenkov developed a methodology for conducting drifter experiments in the coastal zone using GPRS-sensors, this method is now used for research in other water areas. Research interests also include studies of water dynamics using acoustic Doppler current meters, as well as hydrophysical processes in the Arctic basin.
