I am a native of Ukraine. Since I started working at Pace in 2002, I have been coordinating the Russian and Slavic Studies Program in the Department of Modern Language and Cultures. A member of numerous professional organizations, I am interested in Slavic linguistics, Ukrainian, Indo-European studies, linguistic typology, socio-linguistics, medieval and early Modern Muslim-Slavic relationships.
