My research interests oscillate around everyday people’s lives and how these are mutually shaped by social and economic positions of group and individuals. For my dissertation, I conducted a long-term fieldwork in New Delhi, India, focusing on practicing of gender and class by professionals working for anti-sex-trafficking non-governmental organizations involved in development projects.
I also worked in various projects concerning migration for The Institute of Public Affairs (Warsaw, Poland) and Centre for Migration Studies (Poznan, Poland). As a Research Associate at the Wirth Institute for Austrian and Central European Studies I will be conducting a research project ‘Being a Pole in Edmonton. An Anthropological Case Study’, in which I will examine social, economic and cultural dimensions of migrating to Canada, as well as the role of social networks in integration processes.
