I was born in a beautiful city Saint-Petersburg in Russia. At the age of about 14 I made a conscious decision to go to study at Physics and Mathematics Lyceum. I will remember my high-school years during the whole my life, it was a very good and memorable time.
After high-school I went to Polytechnic University to the department of Innovations. At those times it was very much trendy, believe me, and I wanted to study something else than Math and Physics. My bachelor diploma topic was about Agent Simulation Modelling of network subscribers.
Luckily, my home university provided the possibility of double-degree diplomas in cooperation with LUT. I did not miss this opportunity and enrolled to the program. In LUT I studied Global Management of Innovation and Technology. As for my Masters research project I explored various possibilities that would increase the accuracy of Ensto's demand forecasting model.
After the graduation I continued my career path with Ensto, for which I am very grateful to them. I moved to Porvoo and worked at Ensto for about 6 years at Operations. A lot happened in those 6 years. I developed forecasting model as well as the overall internal supply chain, inventory management and planning processes. At the same time, I was developing various BI-reports for different departments, providing different data analytical services.
After 6 years I decided to continue with DeliveryHero Finland (Foodora) and do something great and remarkable for its Operations in Finland. After a year and a half of working here, I can say that in Operations there is a lot of similarities between Manufacturing and IT companies.
I do lots of things in my free time. I like to paint, I already had 2 personal art exhibitions. I love sports, singing in a choir and learning languages.
I will be very happy to share my experience and be a mentor to any student who is good with numbers, is not afraid to try and learn something new and sees a deep meaning in the endless self-development and self-improvement.
