I have graduated from the Lomonosov Moscow State University, Faculty of Biology. Obtained PhD in this Faculty in 1985. From 1984 to 2010 I worked in the All-Russian Research Institute for Nature Protection (attached to the Ministry of Natural Resources of the Russian Federation). Since November 2010 I have been working as the senior researcher of in the A.N. Severtsov Institute of Ecology and Evolution. Field of the scientific interests: study of adaptations of birds to anthropogenic transformation of environment and climate changes, population studies of farmland birds and waterfowl in the changing environment, development of scientifically based methods for conservation and wise use of birds. My cooperation with European colleagues in the sphere of bird study and protection began in mid 1990s. We spent several joint successful projects on Corncake, ducks and waders and obtained new interesting results. I always tried to involve Russian ornithologists from different region in our activities, and inform them about new European conferences, important publications, potential projects etc.
