Research Interests

I am interested in four broad areas of research. The first involves a critical understanding of the post-socialist economic and social transformation in Russia. The second focuses on the connections between class and gender processes, transformations of urban space, and mobility. The third interest includes a critical engagement with GIS technology and practice; and the last area of research is urban political ecology and environmental justice. In my scholarship I attempt to rethink theoretical understandings of social and spatial processes and ground these theoretical perspectives in empirical work.
