GLOBAL OUTLOOK
Biography
I'm a PhD candidate in neuroscience who is interested in science communication, science policy, and project management. I am interested in continuing my career in the field of scientific management.

With a background in genetics and physiology, I'm experienced in working in different research fields with a range of methods from genetic engineering and biochemistry to in vivo two-photon microscopy and behavioral tests on rats. I also have multicultural work experience with my undergraduate studies in Russia, internships in Switzerland, Israel and USA and current PhD project in Germany.

Aside from doing research myself, I'm very keen on sharing scientific discoveries with others, so over the last 5 years, I am involved in several outreach initiatives. I'm the author and the editor of the most popular Russian website about molecular biology biomolecula.ru, a co-organizer of several outreach events, like Kids Brain Day at the LMU Munich, and a team leader of the Munich chapter of the science festival Pint of Science and science communication events 15x4.

These activities and my online student advising project gave me experience in leadership, teamwork and project management and helped me to understand that managing and coordinating projects is something that I enjoy doing and that I am good at. I am confident in leading teams of 4-15 people with a different background in the project of several weeks to over a year long. I have 7+ years experience in public speaking, delivering scientific reports and international conferences as weel as science communication talks to general public.

My dream goal is to bring scientific knowledge closer to our everyday life and at the same time make research a more attractive and fulfilling career for the great minds. Thus I am seeking for the opportunities to work on the intersection of policy and communication of science and would be interested in learning more about these fields.
