  • I am against the war in Ukraine. It must be stopped.
  • I did not vote for Putin. I do not think that Putin is the legitimate president of Russia.
  • I hope for the better future. I publicly express my position in my twitter.
  • I do not speak for the whole laboratory.

About me

When I finished the school, I had two choices: I liked physics and I liked programming. In the end I decided that physics is more interesting. Now I am doing programming in physics. Currently I am doing software and physical data analysis for a number of experiments in particle physics (Troitsk nu-mass, IAXO and other experiments). I am leading development of scientific libraries and leading the development of new simulation software and models.

The laboratory at MIPT, we created in the last years includes young passionate researchers in different fields connected to particle and nuclear physics methods. The aim of the laboratory is to prepare the new generation of researchers, familiar with modern scientific tools and able to develop new ones.
