I am a senior scientist at the Department of General Physiology of A. A.Bogomoletz Institute of Physiology (Kyiv, Ukraine). I obtained a degree in Biophysics at the Kiev State University and completed a PhD in specialization in Control in Biological and Medical Systems at the Institute of Cybernetics (Kiev). After this I have been worked at the A. A. Bogomoletz Institute of Physiology. I have an extensive experience in computational modeling of neuronal excitability, synaptic transmission, cellular and synaptic mechanisms of synaptic plasticity, and mechanisms of Ca2+ regulation in neurons. My current research focuses on the roles of Ca2+-binding proteins and CA2+ handling systems in the physiological functioning of neurons.
