Daria Krivonos

I am a PhD candidate in Sociology at the University of Helsinki, Department of Social Research. My research interests include youth studies, sociology of migration, ethnic relations, gender studies, and ethnographic methods. Currently I am doing my doctoral research on Russian youth employment in the Helsinki metropolitan area using ethnographic methods and qualitative interviews. I am interested in how young Russians conceptualize their ethnicity and migrancy in relation to employment and what kind of obstacles they encounter and have to manage when seeking employment in Finland.
