Research and teaching


Graduated with honour from the Belarussian State University (Minsk, Belarus) In 2003 received doctoral degree from Otto-von-Guericke University of Magdeburg (Germany). After having several postdocs in Poland, Germany, Denmark and UK, currently working as a senior assistant and docent at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Turku (Finland). Two students, Volha Karelkina and Vladimir Korotkov, completed their doctoral degrees under my supervison. Two more, Outu Wilppu and Alaleh Maskooki, are my current doctoral students
