Why I chose to work at Chebychev Laboratory

As I get frequently asked the questions why I chose to work at Chebychev Laboratory, here's my Top 3 on what I especially like here:

(1) A collaborative and supportive work environment, motivated and positive colleagues and a lively research seminar.

(2) Excellent and motivated students, most of them winners of the all-Russian or international Olympiad in mathematics, physics or computer science.

(3) A truly international workplace, with colleagues who have spent many years studying and working abroad, and many international visitors, both upon individual invitations and special programmes e.g. the Lame chair.
