Since 2003 she had worked as a project engineer in industry for
10 years and defended her PhD thesis in Structural Mechanics at
Moscow State University of Railway Engineering (MIIT) in 2013.
Since 2006, she has worked at RUDN University (including as an
associate professor since 2014). The main research topic
concerns analytical methods of stress-strain analysis of
spatial/shell structures, especially helicoids, and she is a
member of the international association for spatial structures
(IASS). She is also involved in several research projects such
as optimization of free-form roofs (in collaboration with
CentraleSupelec, France) and stress solution for elastic/elastic
FGM discs (in collaboration with Beihang University, China).
