Lomonosov Moscow State University
Shopina Olga currently working as a junior research fellow at the Center for Forest Ecology and Productivity of the RAS. She has received B.Sc. (2019) and M.Sc. (2021) degrees in Ecology and Environmental Management from the Lomonosov Moscow State University (Department of Environmental Geochemistry and Soil Geography). As a part of her bachelor's work, she has studied partition of heavy metals and metalloids, as well as cesium-137 in a soil-plant system at the Central Russian Upland. In her master's thesis, she has created a soil map (a scale of 1:150 000) for the Smolenskoe Poozerye National Park. At the national park, she described the soil restoration after the ploughing.
She has participated in projects of the Russian Science Foundation including “Indicators of the agrogenic stage of forest development”, “Integrated technology for environment assessment of Moscow megacity based on chemical analysis of microparticle composition in the "atmosphere - snow - road dust - soil - surface water" system (Megacity)”, and “Pyrogenic fingerprints in subboreal deserts of Eurasia”. Olga is the first author of five articles, including two articles in journals indexed in Scopus. Her scientific field of interest is soil mapping, soil classification, landscape geochemistry, and environmental impact assessment of space transportation.
