I’m a linguist currently working in CNRS at laboratoire Dynamique du langage in Lyon, France. I have a postdoc position in the project “Documentation of Negidal, a nearly extinct Northern Tungusic language of the Lower Amur”.
I also work as a junior researcher at the Quantitative Linguistics Lab, Kazan Federal University. My interests include Siberian languages (particularly Tungusic and its neighbors), phonetics, language change and language contact.
I graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University (Faculty of Philology, Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics aka OTiPL). From 2009 to 2013 I was involved in the project Dialectal and cultural diversity among Evens in Siberia within the Max Planck Research Group on Comparative Population Linguistics at Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany. From 2012 to 2015 I was affiliated with Amsterdam Center for Language and Communication as an external PhD student. In September 2015 I obtained my PhD from the University of Amsterdam (UvA). The title of my dissertation is “Vowel harmony in two Even dialects: Production and perception”. Full text can be found here.
