Having graduated from Irkutsk State Linguistic University, I have been working in the field of teaching and education. Since 2014 I have been doing a postgraduate course in Linguistic Theory.


Teaching Summary


I am lucky enough to teach on a diverse range of directions including General English for the 1st and 2nd year students of Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering, Power Engineering departments, Applied Linguistics and Phonetics as part of Bachelor Degree Course in Linguistics.


Research Summary


My main research interest is on concepts of human brain and language interrelation. I am fascinated by cognitive linguistics, psycholinguistics and neurosciences.

My postgraduate thesis largely addresses topics like: What makes communication effective? Is there any influence of using categorical sentences on effectiveness? Are there any categorical / non categorical prototype patterns that people use in speech? I also compare 2 languages: English and Russian and apply discourse analysis for this purpose.
