Anthropology

My work has focused on mobility/immobility studies through ethnographic research in Russia and Eurasia. I have conducted research on migration, anthropology of gender, and statelessness. I have also analyzed the migration of post-Soviet labor migrants moving between Istanbul, Moscow, and southern Moldova; the gender dynamics in migrant communities; and more recently, how noncitizen women and their children in Russia--especially migrants from Central Asia and central Africa--access service providers, NGOs, and education. I am interested in cross-regional comparisons that explore the larger theme of settler societies and questions related to newcomer integration.
