Nina is 30 years old, she is a biologist by education. She graduated from the Faculty of Biology of Lomonosov Moscow State University, Department of the Theory of Evolution, and studied for two years in the graduate school at the Department of Geobotany. After graduate school, she went to work as a biology teacher. She has travelled a lot on expeditions with schoolchildren; in particular, she went to the White Sea coast for several years. She is in love with the White Sea and tries to get there every summer. This year she started diving, as she says, it is very curious to look at everything that you study in many respects in theory or in collections, in a living natural state. Her interest in botany and the development of various plant communities appeared during her volunteer work on wild fires from 2009 to 2015 (now there is no more time for this, unfortunately). She wanted to study how biotopes are restored after fires.
