Language Background

Born and raised in Germany and having Russian parents, I grew up bilingually with German as my main native language, and Russian as my second native language. I have also achieved native-level proficiency in English through extensive exposure and practice since the age of 9. I have scored 113/120 on a TOEFL test that I took without additional preparation. (The average score of native speakers is 91/120.) Currently, I am writing a novel in English.


I have completed 3 Chinese-English translation projects with a total length of over 2500 Chinese characters for Westlake University (Hangzhou, China):

• Press release about new COVID-19 research, published on the website of Westlake University: (slightly edited after translation)

• Press release about new types of brain imagining techniques, published on the website of Westlake University: (slightly edited after translation)

• Report about the second election of the board of trustees of the Hangzhou Westlake Education Foundation
