Bio

I received Bachelor and Master degrees in Applied Mathematics and Informatics at the Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University in 2009 and 2011. Within my bachelor thesis I focused on modeling of enterprise facility management. My master thesis was dedicated to development of a method of integrated quantitative assessment of qualitative enterprise processes.

In 2009-2011 I also worked as a tutor and research assistant at the SAP Academic Centre of Competence at the Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University. In 2012 I worked at SAP in Moscow as a specialist of SAP University Alliances.

Since March 2013, I am doing a PhD-study at the chair of Business Process Technology at HPI. In May 2014, I became a member of the HPI Research School. You can watch an elevator pitch of my work for getting an idea about my research.
