I work in Algebraic Geometry, in particular I am interested in derived categories and the Grothendieck ring of varieties, with applications in Birational Geometry, singularities and Algebraic K-theory.  

In 2020-2023 my work on derived categories of singularities is supported by an EPSRC grant Derived categories and algebraic K-theory of singularities. Here is the mathematical content of the proposal: pdf

A short presentation of singularities and my work for a general mathematical audience: slides.

Previous positions

I obtained my MSc degree in Saint-Petersburg in 2005 and defended my PhD in June 2011 under the supervision of Andrei Suslin at Northwestern University. 

During the academic years 2011-13 I was a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics, University of Bonn, the Hausdorff Research Institute for Mathematics and the University of Mainz. 

In 2013-14 I was a Whittaker postdoc at the University of Edinburgh.
