Career Details

After 18 years of work in Russian Creative Industries (Education, Film, TV, Theatre, Festivals) in different positions from Assistant to Executive, I moved to the UK in 2015. I have finished MA Screenwriting with Distinction at Edinburgh Napier University (Screen Academy Scotland) and have started a PhD in Film at Lancaster University.

Research Interests

Film Studies, Russian Studies, Adaptation Studies, Feminist Film Studies, Sociology.

Thesis Title

Crime and Punishment: Representing the Woman in English-language Screen Adaptations of Dostoevsky’s Novel.

Thesis Outline

My doctoral research explores film adaptation in the process of crossing historical, national and gender borders. Sociocultural, feminist and philosophical examination of the English-language screen adaptations of Crime and Punishment by Dostoevsky will lead to a practical project: writing a screenplay and producing a short film, as the result of the theoretical findings.

Supervised By

My supervisors are Richard Rushton and Gary Bettinson.

Research Grants

Santander Scholarship (2015, Masters course)

FASS Research Scholarship (2018, PhD course)

External Roles

I am a screenwriter with a number of credits in film and TV both in Russia and in the UK and a tutor in online Russian screenwriting school.
