About Me

Mikhail M. Omelko working in nature

I was born in 1983 in Ussuriysk city (Russia). From 1983 to 2000 I lived in the village of Gornotaezhnoe in Primorsky Krai. Since 2000 live in Vladivostok.

In 2000-2006 I studied at the Far Eastern State University (now the Far Eastern Federal University); in 2005 received a specialist diploma with honors, and in 2006 – a master’s degree. In 2006-2009 I studied as PhD student in the same university. In 2009, I successfully defended my thesis on the topic “Ecology and the distribution of dwelling herpetobiont spiders (Arachnida, Aranei) in the south of Primorsky Krai.”
