I came to the Netherlands in 2016 to continue my studies in linguistics. I finished a Master’s in Linguistics at Radboud after a Specialist degree in Russian Philology back in Moscow.

My main study focus was on literary studies until I got more and more interested in language, especially language description, sociolinguistics, and cognitive linguistics. A job opportunity at Yoast immediately sparked my enthusiasm. It gave me a chance to use my skills to help speakers of different languages share reachable and engaging content.  It also encouraged me to start coding. At present, I am working at Yoast both as a developer and researcher.

I stayed devoted to sociolinguists and writing, especially screenwriting. In my free time, I like to play music, visit concerts, and go camping.
