Bio
Having worked in the field of nuclear and radiation safety for 10 years, I have acquired extensive translation experience in the following subject areas: nuclear physics; systems and equipment of nuclear power plants; radioactive waste management; spent fuel storage; radiation monitoring; thermohydraulic analysis; dose assessment; ALARA concept and its applications; probabilistic safety analysis; environmental protection.

Besides a good sci/tech vocabulary, I have a clear understanding of the subject matter I translate. That’s because I not only saw much of the technical stuff with my own eyes, but also have a solid grasp of the science and the operation principles behind it. For example, not every translator can boast of walking inside a nuclear power plant (and even inside a reactor vessel, not loaded of course) or, say, having an idea of what a dosimeter or spectrometer is and how they operate.

Since 1999, I have been a contract translator for the Ukrainian Authors Agency. I regularly translated (Ru->En) scientific journals, cover-to-cover or in part, for Begell House Inc., Consultants Bureau/Plenum Press, Kluwer Academic Publishers, and Springer Science + Business Media on the following subjects: cybernetics, systems analysis, computing technology, control systems, automation, information sciences, applied mechanics, materials science, wave propagation, robotics, vibration theory, fluid mechanics, computational mechanics, structural mechanics.

I am a graduate of the Taras Shevchenko National University, RadioPhysics Department, and a postgraduate of the Institute for Problems of Mathematical Machines and Systems (Kiev, Ukraine).
My comprehensive background allows me to gain insight into virtually any scientific or engineering area.
