I am a doctoral student at Manchester Institute of Innovation Research (MIOIR), Alliance Manchester Business School. My current research is related to social innovations, their spatial distribution, development and survival. I am particularly interested in the factors driving social innovation emergence and why some places are more successful in the field than the others. I am also interested in the Triple/Quadruple Helix model for social innovations, and the role of regional/metropolitan infrastructure as well as path dependence. 

My research is funded by Alliance Manchester Business School PhD scholarship. 


I graduated with a degree in Computer Science from the National Research University Higher School of Economics (Moscow, Russia) in 2014.

Following that, in 2016 I graduated with a Distinction gained in Master course 'Governance of Science, Technology and Innovations' taught at the Institute of Statistical Studies and Economy of Knowledge at National Research University Higher School of Economics (Moscow, Russia).
