I was born in Belarus, and spent my childhood in Russia, among medieval mounds, under gloomy spruce trees. I got an equivalent of Masters in Physics (Biophysics) from the Moscow State University in 2003, and a PhD in Neuroscience from the Institute of Higher Nervous Activity and Neurophysiology (Russian Academy of Science, Moscow) in 2005.

After getting a degree, for a few years I worked in corporate business as a manager and analyst for the Procter & Gamble company. I specialized in predictive modeling of logistics networks, product flow optimization, data analysis, and corporate training. In 2010 I returned to academic neuroscience, and had a great postdoc experience at Brown University, in the group of Carlos Aizenman.

In 2014 I joined Bard College as an Assistant Professor of Biology.

My name is pronounced ar-SE-ny ha-HA-lin; the "K" letter is silent for historical reasons. In my spare time I like to paint, and torture folk musical instruments.
