Vysokovsky Graduate School of Urbanism is an independent learning and research division of the National Research University Higher School of Economics. Founded in 2011, the School takes a multidisciplinary approach towards studying and planning modern cities, using the excellent foundation that one of Russia’s top universities has formed in the humanities and socioeconomics. The School’s mission is to create a centre in Russia for learning and research in urban studies and urban planning. It is envisioned that this centre will respond to the needs of the 21st century city and the corresponding era of megacities that are home to tens of millions of people with diverse interests and aspirations. These are cities where sources of information grow and the space for civil, creative, and economic opportunities expands. From 2016 the School is officially named in honor of its first dean and one of the founders — Alexander Vysokovsky (1948-2014).

My research interests are three-fold: mathematical modelling of the spatial structure of the city, student accommodation (spatial distribution and formats), and municipal finance. While my research in the first area is primarily theoretical, the findings in other areas might have direct practical application helping Russian cities to develop.As part of my thesis work, I focus on the budgeting systems of Russian regional capitals. In the beginning of 2000, Alexander Vysokovsky did research on the income of Russian municipalities in order to find a way to expand and diversify its sources. In my thesis, I analyze 80 regional budgets from 2013-2015 and also search for additional sources of income. I try to develop effective strategies for municipal budget planning. This year my work is focused on measuring the impact of land and property poliсies on the resilience of municipal budget.
