My academic background

February 8th, 2008 · No Comments · about me

I have been in school, in some academic program or other, most of my life. I have an equivalent of BA, MA, and ABD from Moscow State University in Russia. My specialty in Moscow University was literature of American South. I have completed all of the doctorate coursework and wrote most of the dissertation but my emigration paperwork came through before my dissertation was finished. My Master’s thesis was on the concept of Absolute Evil in William Faulkner’s The Fable, and my doctoral work was on the use of multiple points of view in the works of William Styron. I moved to the US in 1991 and switched careers from academy to high-tech. I have discovered my calling in the field of Technical Support – a job like no other, where you get to be a hero 9 to 5, solving people’s technical problems and getting them back on track with their work and their lives. I worked in different Tech Support roles at Stream, Netscape, VeriSign, PayPal, and now Intuit. In 2006 I received an MBA from Golden Gate University and now I am starting on my doctoral journey at Fielding Graduate University. I am interested in the concepts of knowledge capture, share and reuse in the companies. I hope to be able to expand my understanding of the driving factors for knowledge exchange and develop methodologies for making actionable knowledge more discoverable by the consumers of this knowledge. I hope to be able to apply principles from the field of epistemology to the management of enterprise-level knowledge collaboration.
