2007 – present:  Leading Research Scientist, Hydrometeorological Research Centre of the Russian Federation, Executive Director of North Eurasia Climate Centre, Moscow, Russia.

Topics of interest:

Investigations into the system of forcings and feedbacks inherent in the climate system, which affects climate variability and predictability on the time scales of month – season – year; statistical methods of regional climate prediction on the time scales of month – season – year; multi-model ensemble global and regional climate prediction methods with a focus on probabilistic approach; downscaling from global multi-model ensemble prediction products.

Active research projects:

Couple Russian Fund for Basic Research projects on the seasonal prediction and model assessments.

APEC Climate Center (Korea) project on statistical deterministic and probabilistic downscaling from multimodel ensemble global forecasts.
