Personal profile


I am a researcher with an electrical engineering background and advanced skills in power systems modelling, mathematical optimisation, electricity markets, energy policies, Game Theory, and data valuation. By combining these areas of expertise, I address the acute issues of integrating renewable and distributed energy resources in active distribution networks, developing flexibility markets and data marketplaces, making power systems of the future better.

I received the PhD degree in Engineering Systems from Skoltech (Russia, Moscow) in 2020, and the BSc and MSc degrees in Electrical Engineering from Moscow Power Engineering Institute in 2014 and 2016. I have contributed to large international research projects (e.g., ATTEST project of the EU's H2020 funding programme) and consulting projects, such as consultancy works on active distribution networks and DSO transition for Scottish Power Energy Networks (SPEN). I have also completed several international internships, including the United Nations ESCAP (2017) and the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile (2019).

My current research focuses on developing novel solutions and concepts for data-driven flexibility markets, with applications to active distribution networks and transmission-distribution systems coordination.
