My previous experience was at applied econometric modelling and macro- and regional economic forecasting in the former Soviet Union. In 1985-1991 I was working on alternative submissions on economic reforms. Some of the latest projects of that time were: an alternative plan of privatisation of government owned enterprises; feasibility studies of joint ventures; and a joint Soviet-American project on economic consequences of the reduction in defense expenditure in both countries. I used to teach post-graduate students in Moscow and had experience of guest lecturing at several American universities. Since 1991 academic year I have joined the Australian academic community. In 1991, I was visiting Charles Sturt University (Wagga Wagga, NSW), and then, in 1992-1993 academic years I taught at The University of Melbourne.
I am Deputy Head of the Department of Economics. I am responsible for the department's education portfolio. This means coordinating economics course work across all campuses of Monash Unversity in Australia and overseas where the economics disciplene is offered.
