I was born in the northern capital of Russia St. Petersburg.
Where do you live and with whom?
Currently living in Nijmegen. Alone(
Who was your role model when you were a kid?
Didn't have a particular role model. I think that it was a mix of the characters from books, movies, and real life. My family, Tom Sawyer, James Bond. All of them put their contribution.
Why aren’t you doing the same thing now as your role model (or do you?)
Partially yes. Now my ideal is different from what it used to be. Now it is more real. 
What is the thing in your (work or other) history that you are most proud of?
I'm proud of my previous project. We were developing a device to control respiratory motion. Hopefully, this will help to save lives in the future and I'm feeling proud of contributing to it.
What is it that you would like to achieve in work in the next 5 to 10?
Obtain my PhD..... hmmm. I want to keep creating technology, devices that can improve human life. And be able to guide people who want to do the same.
For what can we wake you up?
To watch CHL ice hockey match, big festivity, traveling, helping. Sleeping is important, but there things that are even more valuable.
What is your hobby and how good are you at it?
I like traveling. I'm very good at taking vacations and going abroad. I like to read, like good movies. I do sports ( but not as good as others).
What is your biggest irritation?
Fear of going towards to your dream.
Who would you like to invite for dinner, if you had the chance?
Some of my old friends, who live far now. For the rest, it would be great to go for some drinks.​
