Before starting her academic career, Larisa was an elite Paralympic swimmer for over 16 years, and worked with charities and non-profit organisation supporting children with disabilities and their families in Moscow, Russia. Her interest in Finance developed during the time of the Global Financial Crisis of 2008 which severely hit the unstable Russian economy, especially impacting on people and families from less privileged backgrounds. She decided to study finance at the Management Faculty in the Finance University under the Government of the Russian Federation to understand how countries can become more resilient to financial crises. She continued her academic journey in Newcastle Business School, Northumbria University, UK, where she completed her PhD with the project entitled “Return and Volatility transmission in emerging and developed stock markets” in 2016. Since then Larisa published more than 50 papers in top academic journals and became one of the most cited female authors in the Fintech and cryptocurrency research area.
