Junior Researcher, MSc, Laboratory of Environmentally Safe Animal Production under Technogenic Contamination Conditions
radioecology, migration of technogenic radionuclides in feed-to-animal produce chains, study of the transfer factors in the feed-to-meat/milk chain.
Born in 1957. In 1980, graduated from ZooEngineering Faculty of the Leningrad Agricultural Institute with a degree in Zootechnics. In March of 1988, started working as a n engineer at the Belorussian Branch of All-Union Research Institute of Agricultural Radiology (later – Research Institute of Radiology, and since 2019 – Institute of Radiobiology of the National Academy of Sciences). Became junior researcher in 1994.
The scope of research activity includes scientific and economic experiments, study of the transfer factors of technogenic radionuclides into animal products. Responsible for the radioecological monitoring in agricultural enterprises located in the impact zone of the BelNPP in the Ostrovets district of Vitebsk region.
The results of his research are reflected in 52 co-authored scientific papers, including two monographs: “Radioecological Aspects of Animal Husbandry (Consequences and Countermeasures after the Chernobyl NPP Accident)” and “Environmental and Radiobiological Consequences of the Chernobyl Disaster for the Animal Husbandry and the Ways to Overcome Them”. Completed an advanced training course on Radioecology, Radiometry and Radiation Safety. Is responsible for managing QMS-related activities for the laboratory.
Awarded with Certificates of Merit by the Gomel Regional Executive Committee (2021) and Department for the Elimination of Consequences of the Chernobyl NPP Disaster (2006 and 2016). In 2021, received a badge of the Department for the Elimination of Consequences of the Chernobyl NPP Disaster “For the Merits and Achievements in Overcoming the Consequences of the Chernobyl Disaster”.
