I am an associate professor of the Finance and credit department at Yuriy Fedkovych Chernivtsi National University. I have master's degrees in finance and political science from the same university. In 2016 I have defended a PhD thesis in economics on the funding of Ukrainian NGO's activities. I have also published on this topic in peer-reviewed journals. Also, I am a doctorate student at Banking University (Kyiv, Ukraine) and affiliated honorary research fellow at Fil. Dr. Jan-U. Sandal Institute (Norway).
