I graduated from Moscow State University in Russia. As a trainee, I spent two years in Sasha Chervonsky's lab at The Jackson Laboratory learning immunology and later received a Ph.D. in Immunology/Oncology in Dr. Dmitry Kazansky's lab at The Cancer Research Center in Moscow. To pursue my career in immunology, I joined Alfred Singer's research group at NIH/NCI in Bethesda, where I studied molecular mechanisms of negative selection in the thymus and the role of non-coding RNAs during T cell development.

In my laboratory, we continue to explore the regulatory functions of non-coding RNAs in T cell maintenance and differentiation. Using various mouse models of bacterial infection, autoimmunity and cancer, our lab is trying to understand the molecular mechanisms of memory formation and exhaustion in T cells.
