I'm a researcher at the Laboratory of Anthropology.
In 2005-2006 I was involved in a project which was aimed at writing a history of Protestant movements (including classical Pentecostals and new Pentecostals) in the South of Tyumen oblast' (West Siberia, Russia). In 2008 I wrote my master's thesis named "International Relationships of Religious Communities in Russia (on the example of Tyumen oblast)", which included also data collected in Pentecostal churches of the region. In 2011 I did a research on strategies of inculturation of new Pentecostal churches in Russia.
Since 2011 I've been doing a research on new Pentecostal communities in Khanty-Mansi Autonomous okrug (West Siberia, Russia) which includes their history, theology, state-church relations, normative images of Pentecostal by politicians, religious leaders and the regional society, religiousity of Pentecostals, conversion to and socialization in the church, gender roles in Pentecostal churches.
