What do you do when you are not in the lab?

I enjoy the beauty of life in many ways


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 English


List interesting facts about you:   


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.
I’m green.
