I was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia, on November 16, 1980. Here are a couple of words about my family and my name.

I work at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow and at Saint Petersburg State University, doing theoretical and experimental linguistics. My main areas of interest are grammatical features and agreement (production, processing and representation in the mental grammar), inflectional and, to a lesser extent, derivational morphology in the mental lexicon, word order alternations (syntax and processing), information structure, especially formal approaches to it, syntax-prosody relations, the architecture of the grammar and psycholinguistically adequate grammars,
generative approaches of Russian syntax etc.

More information about my studies and research can be found
here and here. Here are my publications and presentations, as well as the events I organized. The page dedicated to teaching is laconic — I do find time to provide students with materials for ongoing courses, but not to create proper presentations of these courses here.

The number of fascinating questions one can ask as a specialist is very limited, so I am interested in popular science. Usually I read or watch other people’s work, but occasionally talk or write about something myself. Selected links are listed
here (in Russian).

Together with my husband Daniel Lourie I have a passion for pre-revolutionary Russian and Soviet antiques. The most notable outcome of this passion is Daniel’s collection of Soviet tin boxes: about one thousand boxes from tea, coffee, candies, cosmetics and many other things made in 1920s-1970s.
