Project Manager

I was born in Yoshkar-Ola, it’s a small town in the Republic of Mari El. After graduating from high school, I decided to move to Moscow. I entered the Russian State University for the Humanities, the faculty of International Relations and began to study Chinese. For me it was a big step into the adult world, since I had never lived on my own without my family.

While I was studying global affairs and international business, I realized that everything in the world depends on energy. It helped me choose the future Master’s program. I entered Gubkin University for studying strategic management of fuel & energy complex. Now, I specialize in the energy industry of China.

I enjoy participating in scientific conferences, writing scholarly articles, and discuss them on public presentations. It inspires me.

I love spending time in nature, especially walking in the woods. My favourite season is spring, when it is getting warm and sunny, you can take off a heavy coat, enjoy the first green leaves and fresh air. Moreover, spring is the perfect time to pick out seedlings at the dacha! My friends often call me a real babushka because of that. I like growing vegetables, picking them and making delicious food.

In Albion I work as a Project Manager. I enjoy establishing contacts with foreign companies and contributing to their success in the Russian market. In the future, I hope that I can contribute to the success of Albion due to my personal qualities, skills and educational background.
