I received Master’s degree from the Department of Physics of Lomonosov Moscow State University in 2004, and since 2006 I am in Fesenkov Astrophysical Institute. Currently, I am the acting head of the Laboratory of Cosmology, Stellar Dynamics and Computational Astrophysics.

Research Interests

I like to deal with fundamental questions in science. My major interest is cosmology, specifically, the structure of spacetime, the nature of dark matter and dark energy, and their effect on the evolution of cosmic structures and on the fate of the universe as a whole. I also have strong and long-standing interest in theoretical biology, astrobiology and SETI.
