Curriculum Vitae

In 2010 I entered department of Chinese language and literature in Institute of Asian and African Studies, Lomonosov Moscow State University. My major was Chinese language and ancient Chinese literature and my research subject was literary aspects of the book "Zhuangzi". In 2012 I received an honorary prize named after Russian Professor of Historical Sciences Vasiliy Mikhaylovich Kryukov for outstanding academic achievements in studying Chinese language. In 2013-2014 I had a 2-semester extensive Chinese language training in Sanya College, Hainan, where I attended classes of Chinese students. I completed my bachelor degree in 2015 (diploma with honors). In 2017 I graduated from National Research University "Higher School of Economics" and completed master's degree in the program "Socioeconomic and Political Development of Modern Asia". My research topic was modern Daoist and Buddhist temples in China. During my student years I have been involved into social activity, such as APEC 2012 Summit in Vladivostok, where I worked as a volunteer interpreter, and 45th International Chemistry Olympiad in Moscow for school students (guide of the team of Chinese Taipei). As for my professional experience, I have worked as a translator and proofreader in Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation, a personal assistant to CEO in a publishing house that publishes books about China in Russian and Chinese and as a teacher of Chinese language in Moscow State University and private schools.
