During my M.S. program in the Lomonosov Moscow State University, 2007 – 2012, I started working with post stroke aphasia at the Center for Speech Pathology and Neurorehabilitation in Moscow. I investigated verbal and non-verbal short-term and working memory deficits and their role in language comprehension in fluent and non-fluent aphasia. From 2012 to 2016, I was a Ph.D. student at the Division of Speech and Hearing Sciences at The University of Hong Kong with a fellowship from the Research Grants Council of Hong Kong. My dissertation was about the development of the Russian version of the Birmingham Cognitive Screen and investigation of cognitive deficits and their role in language impairments in fluent and non-fluent aphasia. During the last year of my Ph.D., I was working part-time at a Hong Kong-based startup developing digital cognitive and emotional screening tools for teens. In 2017, I joined "Studies of Multilingual Aphasia" project in MultiLing.
