I was born in Russia, Saint-Petersburg. Graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2015 with the degree of Master of Arts in Scandinavian Studies. The topic of my dissertation was ‘The Development of the Medieval Ballad in Sweden’. My interests lie within the literary art of the Viking Age, medieval ballads, history of the Swedish language and Scandinavian cinema.
