Deputy director for research at Land of the Leopard
I was born in the town of Barabash, in the Primorye Territory. In 1999, I became actively involved in ecotourism, which led me to my current profession.
My undergraduate thesis was entitled “Using Radio Tracking to Study the Amur Tiger’s Habitat,” and my Master’s thesis was, “The Far Eastern Leopard’s Environmental Footprint.”
Between 2006 and 2012, I worked as a field researcher, studying the habitats of the Amur tiger and Far Eastern leopard as part of programmes run by WCS Russia.
In November 2011, I was hired by the Kedrovaya Pad Nature Reserve.
Since September 2012, I have been deputy director of Land of the Leopard.
