What do you do
when you are not in the lab?
I enjoy the beauty of life in many
Where are you from? How
many languages do you speak?
I’m from town of Puschino in Moscow
Region, Russia. This town was founded as a center of Biology Research and is a
part of Russian Academy of Science. There’s 8 research institutes there which is
a lot for a small town. Later I moved to Moscow and lived there for 5 years
while being a student in Moscow State University.
I speak Russian and
List interesting facts
My creative nature revealed very
early: I wrote poetry and prose since I was 4.
I’m proud of my roots and my
family. Brynskikh may sound like a weird last name, but it belonged to some
remarkable people in the past.
