1996-2002: graduated Karazin National University, Kharkiv, Ukraine;
2002-2005: PhD in computational physics, IPP Greifswald, Otto Hahn Medal;
2005-2009: postdoc at IPP Greifswald, working on electromagnetic PIC codes;
since 2009: scientist at Stellarator Theory IPP Greifswald;
Topics of research: numerics and applicaiton of gyrokinetic PIC codes (Alfvenic instabilities in presence of fast particles, gyrokinetic modelling of MHD-type phenomena), zonal-flow dynamics in stellarators, gyrokinetic theory of pair plasmas (extensions to dipole geometry and non-neutral plasmas)
