I was born in Donetsk region, Ukraine and obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Philology (Language and Literature – English) in 2010, a Master’s degree in Philology (Language and Literature – English, German) in 2011, and an additional qualification in Translation/Interpreting in 2011 from Donetsk National University, Ukraine; after that, I pursued a PgDip in International Development Studies at the University of Portsmouth, UK (2017).

Before moving to Exeter for my PhD research, I worked with VFS Global, MSF, OSCE and UNOPS as a Project Manager, Project Assistant, Language Assistant, Translator, Interpreter, and Communications Senior Associate. In between my Master's and PhD studies I published in international and Ukrainian journals on various aspects of intermediality, whereas my current research interest is the use of intermedial components by British modernist writers, re-writing classic works and ‘recycling’ of ancient myths and Biblical stories.

I am also a member of the International Society for Intermedial Studies (ISIS).
