Research interest

My research concerns with igneous & metamorphic geochemistry and petrology. In course of PhD, I investigated geochemistry of mafic granulites and amphibolites in the Early Precambrian granulite-gneiss complexes, exemplified by the Southern Siberian craton and the Baidrag Block within Central Asian Orogenic Belt (CAOB). I am also interested in ophiolites in CAOB record, and mantle and crustal xenoliths in Cenozoic alkali basalts (Southern Siberia and Mongolia).
