I’m marine biologist specialising in invertebrate animals and underwater photographer with 8 years of experience. Currently I am working as the head of the divers’ team at Moscow State University’s White sea biological station, organising and managing all sorts of underwater work. Me and my team are used to diving in unfavourable and often harsh conditions, successfully conducting complex research projects. 

My own goal is to study underwater life through the lenses and to boost the interest to marine biology among the people, sharing all my finding in social media and in real life through public lectures, exhibitions and media events. I have a great chance to see beauty in the darkness underwater, and this led me to multiple collaborations with the National Geographic, Discovery Channel, the BBC, Nature, Smithsonian and many more as well as with scientific community.

I love what I do and I love the Sea.
