There have been a few opportunities for me to teach during my professional carrier. I supervised (about 120 hours annually) some successfully defended Master of Science diploma works by undergraduate students of Dnipropetrovs’k and Kyiv Universities in Ukraine, and participated in supervision of a successful postgraduate PhD works (Institute of Horticulture, Kyiv, and Institute of Botany, Prague).


My research interests and activities are reflected in the projects I have been running during my career. They are in the areas of development of molecular markers for agricultural and adaptive traits in plants and genetic mapping (collaboration with Prof. Norman F. Weeden, Cornell University), plant population genetics and ecology (collaboration with Prof. Hilde Nybom, Swedish Agricultural University, Alnarp; Dr. Jan Kirschner, Dr. Helena Storhova, Institute of Botany, Prague; Dr. Angela Peterson, University of Halle), plant population genetics, phylogeography and historical demography of plant populations (collaboration with Prof. Hans P. Comes, University of Salzburg, and Prof. Joachim W. Kaderiet, Gutenberg University, Mainz); molecular phylogeny, systematics, biogeography and evolution (collaboration with Dr. Ulf Swenson, Swedish Museum of Natural History, Stockholm); paleoecology and phylogenetic structure of plant communities (collaboration with Prof. Andreas Prinzing, University of Rennes). At earlier stages of my career I also worked on genetic transformation of plants (collaboration with Prof. Alan McHughen, University of Saskatchewan) and molecular structure of protein complexes (under Prof. Boris F. Poglazov, Institute of Biochemistry, Moscow).


My administrative skills developed during holding the posts of the Head of Laboratory at the Institute of Horticulture and at the Institute of Botany. The job required involvement in areas such as administration of laboratory, development of research skills of staff, supervision of research work of students.
