Seasoned energy & utilities professional with a focus on market transformation. I am a project manager, and a contributor to the projects I manage (contractual relations, report or code writing/editing/QC), resource planning & management, project closing. I have a professional interest in Neural Networks (the technology behind AI) and passed the capstone course on Coursera.
My career started in management consulting with Deloitte & Touche in the chaotic mid-nineties Russia, where I advised newly created or privatized enterprises. Later on, I joined Price Waterhouse Ukraine where I fell in love with the energy sector. Since then, I never left the energy or commodities space, being either in consulting or in economic or project management functions. My focus has been on gas and power market regulation (tariff setting, licenses, privatization) and quantitative market analysis (market segmentation, cluster analysis, ST and LT demand forecasting).
Having a higher education in market finance (MBA from the U of Rochester/Simon) and financial risk management (certified Professional Risk Manager), and a Master in Energy Management (ESCP Europe), I have advised on the economics of the O&G upstream, gas transportation, performed technical-economic project evaluations, and regulation advisory work. I have also defined IT system migration roadmaps for utilities.
