I have been studying Shaw since 2014. In 2015, I received my degree in Philology at Lomonosov Moscow State University (diploma paper “Bernard Shaw’s Interwar Dramas: Theatre as Synthesis”). There I continued my research at the Department of Foreign Literature and in 2018 defended my PhD thesis “Experimentation with Genre in Bernard Shaw’s Plays.” I am currently working at Lomonosov Moscow State University as a full-time senior lecturer of English at the Faculty of Global Studies. I also deliver lectures and conduct seminars on the history of literature as a visiting lecturer at other faculties and universities.
