I was born in Russia in the city called Irkutsk, located in the middle of Siberia. In 2006 I graduated from the Institute of Mathematics Economics and Informatics of Irkutsk State University with the Master Degree in Applied Mathematics. Then I had started my post-graduate study at the Institute of System Dynamics and Control Theory of Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Irkutsk, where in December, 2010, I have successfully defended my PhD thesis in Operations Research. In November, 2011 I have moved to Portugal and joined the research activities at INESC Porto under the project on Kidney Exchange Programs. Currently I continue research within this application of operations research under FCT post-doc grant.
My research interests are in the field of combinatorial optimization: modelling, development the methods for solving the problems such as branch and cut and price methods, cutting plane methods, column generation. As to applications I have worked on kidney exchange problem, location problems, clustering problem, PMU placement problem.
