Main Research Interests: 

  • geodynamics of the coastal zone;
  • paleogeography of the Northwestern Black Sea;
  • ecological geology;
  • environmental management.

Teaching and annotation of lectures: 

  • «General ecology». The purpose of course is to acquaint students with basic concepts, problems and directions of modern ecology. 
  • «Introduction to ecological geology». Lectures introduce natural and technogenic geological processes which influence on life and activity of human society.
  • «Geomorphology with bases of Quaternary geology». The course provides basic information about relief and quaternary deposits, conformities to law of their structure and forming open up, the methods of determination of age of quaternary deposits are studied.
  • «Economy, management, the organization of the exploration and engineering geological works» The aim of the course is to master the organizational and economic mechanism of management of geological production for increase of economic efficiency of geological 
  •  works.
  • «Wildlife management economy» studies the problems of nature management structures and guard of environment. 
  • «Ecological geology of Ukraine».  The purpose of discipline is to teach students to assess the environmental conditions of the study area, including geological environment. 
  • «Ecological-geological examination and certification». The aim of the course is to provide theoretical knowledge and practical skills necessary for carrying out ecological expertise during the design and reconstruction of economic facilities.
  • «Engineering geology of the Azov-Black Sea basin». Lectures and practical exercises introduces the geological, engineer-geological, ecology-geological conditions of the coast and shelf of the Black and Azov seas.
