Where did you go for undergrad and what did you major in?

Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia; Specialist degree in Economic Geography

Why did you choose to attend DURP at UIUC?

I have dedicated my research to analysis of complex urban systems and interrelations between transportation development and land-use. The Master of Urban Planning program at UIUC has a comprehensive and complex approach to studying the urban processes, offering all specter of opportunities for professional development. In addition, student-faculty ratio allows an almost personal approach to education.

My aspiration is to bring a new perspective and a deeper understanding into this newly developing field in Russia. I would like to become a consultant to support effective and balanced development of transportation, participating in both academic research and government/business decision-making.
