About Me

A photo of me. Hello. Thank you for visiting my website! I am a Ph.D. student (ABD) in the Educational Theory and Policy program and the Comparative and International Education program at the Pennsylvania State University and a Visiting Scholar with the Donia Human Rights Center at the University of Michigan. Previously, I studied at DePaul University, where I received an M.Ed. in Educational Leadership. I also studied at Minsk State Linguistic University, where I earned a B.A. in Secondary Education with a focus on Foreign Language Instruction.

I am interested in how educational outcomes of immigrant and minority students are affected by different characteristics of the communities that they inhabit. I am also interested in examining how the characteristics of educational systems influence educational expectations, achievement, and attainment across countries. Methodologically, I am interested in causal inference with observational data, research design, and multilevel models. My research is published in Sociological Science, The Social Science Journal, Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, Globalisation, Societies and Education, and European Education.
