Her research interests lie in the field of anthropology and sociology of migration with particular focus on the link between individual motivations and imaginations and global social imaginaries, on one hand, and living and working experiences of migrants in urban post-industrial centres, systematic processes of exclusion, precarisation and marginalisation of migrants, on the other.
She further seeks to shed light on the embeddedness of intra-EU mobilities in an international system of labour supply, as well as, on everyday experiences of postsocialist transformation and global capitalism in the context of Eastern Europe and Bulgaria in particular. Furthermore, she is interested in exploring the opportunities for a dialogue between postsocialist and post- and decolonial scholarship with particular focus on Western modernity narratives, collective social imaginaries and Orientalisation.
