Hello. Thank you for visiting my website! I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Donia Human Rights Center at the University of Michigan. Previously, I was a Ph.D. student in the Educational Theory and Policy program and the Comparative and International Education program at the Pennsylvania State University, where I defended my dissertation in September 2018. Before that, 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 immigrant and minority students' educational outcomes are shaped by the characteristics of their communities. 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 has been published in Sociological Science, British Journal of Sociology of Education, Socius, The Social Science Journal, Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, Globalisation, Societies and Education, and European Education.
