I was born in Daugavpils (Latvia). I did my bachelor and master studies at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Russia, with major in Applied Physics and Math. During my masters thesis at Prof Mikhail Gelfand's group, I studied transcriptional regulation of nitrogen fixation in alpha-proteobacteria with comparative genomics and transcriptomic approaches. I joined R.Aebersold’s group in June 2014 to integrate genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic data. Currently I'm modelling proteome-phenotype connection in BXD mice population.
