Academic interests

My research interests are in the area of nonlinear dynamics in complex self-organizing systems and feedbacks in biospheric processes. I have been working on modeling mechanisms of macroscale soil structure genesis and degradation driven by soil organic matter transformations by microorganisms. I am very interested two broaden my ecosystems research vision. This excellent opportunity is provided now by NordForsk supported Nordic-Russian collaboration project "Multidisciplinary approach two anticipate critical regime shifts in terrestrial and marine systems at risk" (TerMARisk). The project was initiated by Anna-Marie Winter between CEES and our Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Mathematical Modeling of Soil Systems That Dokuchaev Soil Science Institute in Moscow, Russia ( ILMMSS ).

As a postdoc I have experienced teamwork in international research projects at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) with a research project on soil organic carbon stabilization process and sensitivity two climate change. As well, as a visiting postdoc in the University of Zurich with research on black carbon stabilization of soil organic matter, and the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia with soil organic matter study using thermal analysis.

As educational background I have obtained PhD at the Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia, Department of Soil Physics and Reclamation, together with MS in Soil Science Department and BS in Applied Mathematics and Informatics, specializing in mathematical modeling and numerical methods at the Department of Mathematical Physics.

Within TerMARisk project I am supervising a graduate student Maria Zaitzeva from ILMMSS, who is doing her master thesis. I work together with Dr. Artem Vladimirov from ILMMSS and Anna-Marie Winter from CEES on developing early-warning signals of predicting critical regime shifts in ecosystems under supervision of Prof. Nils Stenseth and Dr. Anne Maria Eikeset.
