I was born 30.11.1974 in Barnaul, Altaiskij Krai, Russia in 1974 in a family of medical doctors. Since my childhood myinterest has been orientated to animals, especially Insecta. I attended primary and secondary school in Barnaul and graduated in 1996 at the Altai State Medical University, studying child psychiatry and neurophysiology.

During my studies at university I took part in a great number of expeditions to Altai, Sayan Mountains, Kazakhstan andRussian Far East.

After my degree in medicine, I worked as a child neurophysiologist and as a volunteer of the Altai State University (Zoological Museum)

In the field of medicine, I published 6 articles about pharmacotherapy of Episyndrome, MBD-Syndrome and neural perinatal pathology. Currently, I work as chief of Department of practical psychology in the Altai regional Institute and as lecturer for school teachers.

In the entomological field I prepared the thesis “Butterflies (Lepidoptera, Rhopalocera) of Altai Mountain Country”,[Dissertation autoreferate] at the Altai State University, Barnaul) and worked as a scientific researcher in the Biological Department of the Altai State University. My general interest is directed to the Butterflies (Rhopalocera) – fauna of Altai Mountains, especially to the Russian and Mongolian parts.

I own a private collection of Palearctic Rhopalocera (20.000 specimens, including 500 paratypes) and a collection of World Cossidae (4.500 specimens). I participated in several expeditions to different parts of South Siberia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Russian Far East and Peru.

My scientific work was supported by Thomas – WITT - Stiftung in 2003 and 2006 in order to enable me to study material in different European museums (Kiev, Moscow, Vladivostok, St. Petersburg, Munich, Berlin, Bonn, Karlsruhe, London, Paris, Bruxelles, Leiden, Amsterdam, Tervuren).

In 2003 we (together Mr. Thomas J. WITT) launched a new project on the taxonomy and faunistics of the Eurasian Cossidae.The results are planned to be published in a series of articles and finally in a revisional monograph of the family Cossidae.
