Graduated from St. Petersburg State University with a degree in Geochemistry. In 1998 he defended his dissertation with the award of the degree of Candidate of Geological and Mineralogical Sciences. After graduation, he worked for 20 years at the Mechanobr Institute, where he took part in 70 projects that dealt with various aspects of the study of technological properties and the development of schemes for the enrichment of various types of mineral raw materials. Since 1999, he has been working as an associate professor at the Faculty of Geology of St. Petersburg State University, where he develops methods for studying the material composition of ores and their technological properties, lectures (courses "Economics of Mineral raw materials", "Technological Mineralogy", "Geological and economic assessment of mineral deposits", etc.) and expert activities.

Methodology for assessing the prospects of territories for porphyry mineralization

The concept of solving search problems on porphyry systems, which is based on the sequential conduct of a complex of three studies, is offered to attention: - regional stage – determination of ore content and ranking of granitoid massifs promising for porphyry mineralization; - heterogeneity of geochemical fields – identification of sites and zones promising for porphyry mineralization; - determination of metasomatic zonality – determination of the details of the structure of ore-bearing systems promising for porphyry mineralization. Examples of solving each of the tasks are illustrated with specific examples.
