My Ph.D. research was funded by the Research Council of Norway under the project: "Arctic Shipping Through Challenging Waters".
In April 2019 I defended a Ph.D. thesis on "Russian Coastal State Jurisdiction over Commercial Vessels Navigating the Northern Sea Route"
My current postdoctoral research has been funded by another grant from the Research Council of Norway for the project: "Regulating shipping in Russian Arctic Waters: Between international law, national interests and geopolitics - SIRAW".
The project addresses the dynamics of the interrelationship of institutions, processes, and interests with the purpose to study the implication for the future architecture of the governance of Arctic shipping. The project studies the nexus among the changes in the physical environment resulting from climate change; Russia’s security concerns reinvigorated by the growing internationalization of Arctic affairs; the international political and legal processes launched to develop international rules and standards for Arctic shipping; as well as the broader geopolitical and strategic interests of states (particularly Russia and China) and commercial actors.
My postdoctoral research will be conducted under the following lines of investigation:
1. Development of Russia’s Arctic shipping regulations: status and trends in the Russian regulation of shipping in its Arctic maritime zones.
2. Russia and emerging users of NSR: law and practice of emerging users of the NSR in Russian Arctic waters.
3. Russian influence on international legal and political processes.

As a researcher, I am interested in many different aspects of the Law of the Sea. I have devoted most of my research time to study the Arctic and its governance; Russia and its law and practice, especially regarding the regulation of navigation (within and outside the Northern Sea Route).
