Personal background

Graduated from Francisk Skorina Gomel State University, Faculty of Biology (2009–2014).

Starting from September 2014, a junior researcher at the Laboratory of Experimental Biological Models, Institute of Radiobiology.

In May 2018, a research project under E. Tsukanava’s management was a winner of the BRFFR (Belarusian Republican Foundation for Fundamental Research) contest among young scientists and was awarded a two-year grant.

Takes part in a number of ongoing research projects under the State R&D Programme on Natural Resources and Ecology (sub-programme “Radiation and Natural Recourses”) and Belarusian Republican Foundation for Fundamental Research.

In 2021, won a competition for the Presidential Stipend for Young Talents in Science and was awarded a Presidential Scholarship.
