I hold a BA in Geography from Ivan Franko Lviv National University (2011). In 2013, I received an MA in Interdisciplinary Research and Studies on Eastern Europe from the School of Political Science, University of Bologna, for a dissertation on informal practices and bribery in the Ukrainian land sector. 

PhD research project

My research project aims to explore the 'social life' of transparency as an organising trope of anti-corruption. It focuses on how 'transparency practitioners' - NGO workers, activitsts and journalists - make relations between individuals, companies, and international financial infrastructure presumably underpinning corruption and money laundering visible, and on how ideas of transparency, corruption and relationship travel across context and become enacted through different practices.
