Personal details

I was appointed Lecturer in Law at Leicester in 2006. My teaching career began in Russia where I specialised in employment law and carried out research at St Petersburg State University. Later, I carried out doctoral research at the University of Leicester. My PhD project was devoted to free movement of people in the European Union and lead to the award of the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in 2003, and several publications.

Currently, I teach Employment Law, European Union Law and Analysing Law. I have also taught Employment Law, EU Law, Analysing Law, and Learning Legal Skills as a TA at Leicester. My current research project deals with challenges of the changing paradigm of social solidarity and socio-economic membership in the European Union. I also work as a headnote writer for Common Market Law Reports.

I am convenor of the Employment Law module.


My research interests lie in the European Union law, in particular, EU citizenship, social solidarity, free movement of persons, and coordination of social security schemes in the European Union. I also focus on employment law, in particular, family-friendly policy and influence of EU law on employment law in the UK.
