Social Sciences


I received my PhD in sociology from Stockholm University in collaboration with Södertörn University in 2008, with a dissertation on political, normative, and everyday frameworks for work and care reconciliation in Russia and Sweden. I completed a postdoctoral project at Lund University, School of Social Work (2009-2012) and a research project on transition to adulthood supported by the Foundation for for Baltic and East European Studies (Östersjöstiftelsen) (2009-2015). Since 2015 I work in several research project at Södertörns University, including the project “The social mechanisms of creating memberless civil society organisations in Poland, Russian and Sweden”, financed by the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet), and the project “The impact of civil society organisations on the educational achievements of young people in marginalised urban areas of Stockholm and St Petersburg”, financed by the Foundation for Baltic and East European Studies. My research interests include sociological theory, comparative methodology, social policies (including housing and educational), transition to adulthood, civil society and social mobilization.
