Short CV/Education and training

  • I graduated from the Nizhny Novgorod State University (Russia) with M.Sc. in Radiophysics in 2003. I have two PhD degrees: in Fluid Mechanics (2006) from Nizhny Novgorod State Technical University (Russia) and in Civil Engineering from Tallinn University of Technology (Estonia). In 2013 I also obtained habilitation (Doctor of Science degree) in Oceanography from P.P. Shirshov Institute of Oceanology (Moscow, Russia).
