consultancy and work outside academia
In addition to teaching and academic research some of my other work is related to single or multi method research design and management with particular focus on ethnographic, creative/visual and sensory methods. I can consult on research of culturally specific issues and topics, with a particular specialty in Russian-speaking and post-Socialist cultures and communities.
I speak Russian, English, understands French and Italian.
Personal and family archives research support
In partnership with photographer Ken Kajoranta I also provide research support on personal memorabilia projects including work on arranging and thematising personal items and visuals for archives, collecting and organising stories and biographic narratives.
