I am a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at the University of Michigan. My research is focused on the understanding of the effects of ownership structure on a firm’s behavior in markets without perfect competition. Recent developments, that I work on, exploit reconstitution of Russell 1000/2000 indices to show a causal relationship between the mutual funds portfolio structure and shareholder turnout at director elections.

I earned my Master of Arts in Economics degree in 2014 from New Economic School (Moscow, Russia) and in 2015 from University of Michigan. Prior to that, I received a bachelor’s degree in Physics at Novosibirsk State University (Novosibirsk, Russia).
