I received mz MA in anthropology (Belarusian State University) in 2013 and joined then The Department of Folklore and Culture of Slavic people of The Center for the Belarusian culture, language and literature research of National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, where I studied Belarusian verbal healing charms and folk veterinary.

For the last years, my research interests have revolved around human-plant relations and multispecies ethnography, with a particular focus on methodological and theoretical challenges of ethnobotanical research in post-Soviet countries.

My PhD research is about the kinds of relationships that humans maintain with plants. In the country of Belarus, the rural area of Dokšycy district of Viciebsk region is a region with an extremely high rate of depopulation. The majority of residents are elderly women who often live alone. These women have vast stores of knowledge about local flora and ornamental plants, and they interact with them intensively. The research seeks to examine how plants are thought about and approached, what affects are associated with them, and what their role is in sustaining the lifeways of the women who know and care about them.
