I was born in Kyrgyzstan in a family of seven children. I graduated from Novosibirsk State University in 1981, defended my PhD thesis in 1985, habilitation in 1998 and became a professor in 2002. Since 2012 I have been the director of NN Vorozhtsov Novosibirsk Institute of Organic Chemistry and the institute’s head of the Department of Physical Organic Chemistry. I specialise in physical chemistry, the development and application of new magnetic resonance methods for the study of mechanisms of chemical reactions. I have authored more than 170 scientific articles, six monograph chapters and more than 400 abstracts at international conferences. I am member, vice president and president of various expert societies in my field, expert of the Russian Science Foundation and the Russian Federal Property Fund and an awardee of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science Fellowship. Fifteen PhD theses and more than 25 student diplomas were defended under my leadership.
