After graduating with distinction in Russia she went on to study in Switzerland, with Marc Pantillon in Neuchatel and Thomas Larcher at the Basel Music Academy.

She is laureate of national and international piano competitions in Switzerland, Italy, France, Italy and Spain.

Her fascination for contemporary music led her to work with such musicians like Pierre Boulez, Harrison Birtwistle, Heinz Holliger, Otto Zikan , Kasper de Roo (Windkraft Tirol) and Matthias Pintcher.
