So far I used to teach university students in Russia, USA, and Oman, both at undergraduate and graduate levels. In Russia I was a supervisor for three MSc dissertations, which have won numerous graduate studies awards from the Soros Foundation.

Example syllabi of my courses are listed below (for the full list see the CV).


"Structure and functions of biomacromolecules", (Saratov State U., Russia)


"Physical Chemistry I", (U. of Iowa, USA)


"Petroleum Chemistry", (U. of Nizwa, Oman)



I have made several tutorials available on specifica areas of computational chemistry. The two most popular ones are available online:



Calculations of heavy kinetic isotope effects

Field trips

I used to conduct several expeditions and field trips, with partial goal of educating students in environmental and petroleum chemistry. During those trips the students were given an opportunity to excercise in field analytical methods, in the conditions, which are quite different from the conditions of a laboratory.


Crossing the Polar Circle near Urengoy (Russia)


Arriving at the field camp spot (West Siberia)


Taking water sample for dissolved oxygen analysis
