Head of the Auditing and Control in Accounting Research Group, University of Vaasa, 2024 - now.


I joined the School of Accounting and Finance (University of Vaasa) as an Associate Professor in August, 2018. Before that I worked for 10 years full-time at Graduate School of Management (GSOM), St.Petersburg State University, the first business school from Russia ranked by Financial Times (EQUIS, AMBA, AACSB).

During that time I had an extensive administrative career at GSOM being the Director of Master in Management Programs (2010-2013) and the Academic Director for Executive MBA Programs (2015-2018). I had also a position of a member of CEMS Executive Board (2010-2013). Since 2015 I am a member of EFMD Programme Accreditation Peer Review Teams world-wide and in June, 2018 I was elected as a member of EFMD Programme Accreditation Board.

I took part in Executive education programmes at Harvard Business School (the USA, 2011, 2012), Amsterdam Institute of Finance (the Netherlands, 2016) and Ariel University (Israel, 2010).

My full CV can be seen here.


I teach on the EFMD Programme-accredited Master's Degree Programme in Finance. Over a 10-year teaching career I have taught courses related to International Financial Reporting, Financial Statement Analysis and Company Valuation at undergraduate, graduate and Executive MBA level.

I am also a licensed facilitator of Decision Base Simulation from Celemi® (Sweden).

I have experience of being a visiting professor at School of Economics University of Turku and School of Business Lappeenranta University of Technology.


My research interests focus on intellectual capital evaluation, evaluation of company efficiency and profitability, corporate governance and corporate social responsibility disclosure. I have published over 30 articles on these topics in leading Russian and international journals.

I am a member of the European Accounting Association and American Accounting Association.

My paper «Intellectual capital research: A critical examination of the third stage» with John Dumay (Macquarie University, Australia) got the Emerald Citations of Excellence Award in 2016.

I have received the Research Act of the Year 2021 award for our joint publication "Blockchain in accounting research: current trends and emerging topics" published in Accounting, Auditing & Accountability Journal (co-authored by Mikko Ranta and John Dumay).
