Teaching

I devote the largest part of my working time to research; I teach only occasionally. I have developed and taught the following original courses for Ph.D. students and postdoctoral researchers:

  • Planning of experiments and design of data collection in ecological studies: Kola Science Centre, Apatity (2000); St.Petersburg University (2003); Northern (Arctic) Federal University, Arkhangelsk (2012-2015).
  • Writing of research paper for international journal: Kola Science Centre, Apatity (2001); St.Petersburg University (2002).
  • Scientific communications: Kola Science Centre, Apatity (2003); St.Petersburg University (2005).
  • Meta-analysis: Kola Science Centre, Apatity (2002); St.Petersburg University (2004); Vilnius University (2007); Institute of Plant & Animal Ecology, Yekaterinburg (2008).
  • Statistical analysis of ecological and environmental data: Kola Science Centre, Apatity (2002); St.Petersburg University (2005); Northern (Arctic) Federal University, Arkhangelsk (2013-2015).
