Earning a specialist’s degree in biotechnology from Kazan State Technological University gave me a perfect scientific picture of outward things. After graduation in 2007 I spent one year studying in USA. After being back to Russia, I worked in the sphere of innovation and industry and got interested in economic matter of business processes. Since 2010 I have been working on my PhD in Kazan National Research Technological University. My research is dedicated to “Modeling an ecosystem for diffusion of innovations in hi-tech branches of economy”. Currently, I teach courses on supply chain management. In 2012 I visited the Netherlands as a participant of Bilateral Russian–Dutch Presidential Program, where I’ve got a chance to meet Prof. Loet Leydesdorff personally, whose research composes the main part of my PhD. My thesis was successfully defended on Oct.11, 2013. Generally, my research helps me to reconsider my experience in science and industry in terms of management of innovations.
