Ivanna Knysh is graduated of UVSQ’s master programme in Arctic Studies and she is an early stage researcher (PhD) at UVSQ/Université Paris-Saclay, France, where she is currently preparing her PhD dissertation under the supervision of Professor Jan Borm. She is working on the analysis of travel accounts fully or partially describing Arctic biodiversity.

Her doctoral project is focusing principally on the textual and visual representations, as well as issues of preservation of biodiversity in the Arctic.
