The main focus of my research is seismic diffractions and their applications in exploration geophysics.
I study correlation between seismic diffractivity and rock properties - lithology, fracturing, brittleness.
Also, I work on seismic imaging and seismic processing problems.

I received my Ph.D. in Seismic Imaging (2010), a Master of Science (2007), and Bachelor of
Science (2005) in Seismic Processing, all from Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas
in Moscow.

Before joining the Bureau of Economic Geology in 2011, I worked as a Research Fellow for the
University of Pau in France.
