I am a PhD student of the faculty of Business and Economics (Department of Management and Marketing) of the University of Melbourne. I have obtained MA in International Economics and Business in Corvinus University of Budapest, Hungary and BS in Financial Management in my native city, Novosibirsk, in the heart of Siberia, Russia.
Main spheres of my research interest are comparative CSR, comparative capitalism, institutional and stakeholder theories.
