Born in Leningrad, October 30, 1940. School training 1948-1958. Graduated from the Moscow State University in 1965, Biological-Pedological Faculty, Chair of Entomology. Working at the Paleontological Institute, Russian (formerly USSR) Academy of Sciences (Moscow) as a technician (since 1958), junior research worker (since 1969), research worker (since 1986), and senior research worker (since 1989 till now) in Arthropoda Laboratory. PhD from that Institute, 1980.

Having 62 publications, mostly on the paleontology, taxonomy and phylogeny of Trichoptera and Mecoptera, and also on the entomofauna of recent and fossil resins. Among them one personal monograph and three multi-authored books.
