About me

I graduated from Saratov State University, Russia, with a Master’s degree in Biology and a teacher of Biology and Chemistry certificate in 1995. I obtained my Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Microbiology in 1999 from the same University. In 2001, I moved to the US to work as a postdoctoral associate at Yale University and later at the University of Utah.

My kids are currently going through middle and high school, and I am helping them see how our world works through the lens of chemistry. I want to share my knowledge and love of chemistry with kids from SchoolNova and prepare them for any advanced level of chemistry they plan to take in high school. My goal is to explain key ideas and concepts of chemistry and overcome deficiencies in students’ understanding of this rich and exciting science.
