Assistant Professor, Sociology and Anthropology
My research interests include ethnic diversity and minorities in Europe, nationalism and identity in Eastern Europe, as well as labour migration, informal economies and migration policies in Europe. The processes of identity, migration and citizenship in my native Ukraine and in Eastern Europe have always been at the centre of my research.
