My achievements and anecdotes


Live without curiosity – certainly not!

Live without curiosity – certainly not!

Everything interests me! My college diploma in laboratory technology wasn't enough for me. I missed studying, I read scientific books in my free time! My bachelor's degree in biological sciences wasn't enough for me. My master's probably won't be enough for me either...

For many young people, studying is boring and monotonous, but not for me! I wanted to learn, I wasn't obliged to. That gave me challenges to meet! As well, working in ecology makes me feel useful.
