Vita

Since January 2017 I am employed as Researcher at the team "Social Analytics and Services" in the Computational Social Science Department. My research is focused on evaluation of alternative metrics for measuring scholarly communication and impact. Main focus is the critical reflection of social media data as a basis for novel indicators to measure scholarly output. The project also aims at better understanding how these indicators are perceived by researchers in social sciences and economics.

In 2014, I moved to Germany for pursuing the Master degree in Web Science at the University of Koblenz-Landau. In 2015, I joined the Data Science team at GESIS for working on my Master's thesis under supervision of Prof. Dr. Claudia Wagner and Dr. Fabian Flöck. The title of the thesis is “Measuring gender inequalities of German professions on Wikipedia”; in this work we analyze Wikipedia articles and several other data sources along several dimensions to research various hypotheses regarding the gender bias in the data sources. This work touches upon computational social science in a broad sense and it involves very significant programming aspects.

In 2011, I got the Master degree in Information Technologies of Design at Sumy State University, Ukraine. From 2010 till 2013 I worked as software developer at the Research Institute for Nuclear and Power Pump Building - VNIIAEN.

In 2010, I got the Bachelor degree in Computer Science with specialization in Engineering and Computer Graphics. My Bachelor degree covers System Analyses, Information Systems Design and other computer science classes besides engineering domain courses.

In my spare time I go bicycling along the beautiful banks of the Rhine and Mosel rivers.
