Welcome to my Commons user page!

My activities here are mainly related to the English, Dutch and French Wikipedia.

Half of my time I live in Leuven (Belgium), the other half in Moscow (Russian Federation). I'm a scholar in Russian literature, more in particular the Soviet writer Mikhail Bulgakov, author of The Master and Margarita. I co-operate for this with the Bulgakov House and the Museum Mikhail Bulgakov in Moscow, and the Centre for Russian Studies in Leuven. Further, I advise people who adapt The Master and Margarita for screen, theatre and other performance arts, music, comic strips, etc., and I coach students making term papers about the novel or its adaptations.
