Scope of expertise:

Seismogeology and seismotectonics of Yakutia, Far East, Altai, Sayany, Pribaikalye and North Mongolia, somewhat of China and America, use of methods of structural geology to identify active fault zones, tectonic stress field reconstruction, finding the evidence for recent and paleoearthquakes to generate geodynamic models and, subsequently, to conduct studies on detailed seismic zoning of the territory of Russian Federation.
