About me

I received my BSc and MSc in Mathematics from the St-Petersburg State University, Russia (Department of Applied Mathematics and Control Processes) in 2000. My MSc Dissertation, co-supervised by mathematicians from the St-Petersburg Department of Steklov’s Mathematical Institute, was focused on the approximation of wave behaviour in the diffraction theory applied to the object with curvature jump at the boundary.

I then moved to the UK in 2001 and obtained my PhD from the Loughborough University in 2005. My research was concentrated on inverse problems for boundary value problems on complex bodies. I also continued my collaboration with the Steklov’s Institute, investigating wave behaviour for various complex matrices (interfaces, layers, insertions, etc.) in acoustics, elasticity, as well as electromagnetic media.

In 2006 I received the EPSRC Postdoctoral Fellowship and started independent research at the University of Edinburgh expanding my research fields to control and optimisation problems, with the aim to produce computational scheme for applications in medicine for non-invasive tumour testing and improved tumour destruction protocols.

In 2010 I moved to the University of Glasgow, where I worked for 3 years as a Lecturer in Mathematics. During my stay at the University of Glasgow, I also completed Master's Programme in Academic Teaching and became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

I joined the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the Liverpool Hope University in September 2013. My current research projects are concentrated on different types of wave propagation problems in various media with inhomogeneities.

In August 2018, I joined Computing Science and Mathematics Department at the University of Stirling as a Lecturer in Mathematics.

In addition, since 2000 I am a member of the Organising Committee and also a member of the Editorial Board of the Proceedings of the Annual International Conference 'Days on Diffraction' held in St-Petersburg, Russia.
