Curriculum vitae

I have been studying various aspects of Russian media sphere for more than 5 years. My research interests revolve around state-media relations and media control, local and hyperlocal journalism, digitalisation of media. From January 2020 I work in the project 'Sustainable journalism for algorithmic future', which studies challenges of algorithmic journalism in Russia and beyond.

I work at the intersection of media studies, internet studies and employ social constructionist approach to explore new agency and responsibilities of human actors in AI-driven media and algorithmic journalism.  

I use primarily qualitative methods such as interview and participatory observation. I have extensive experienceof conducting fieldwork in Russia, where interviewed numerous journalists, editors, media managers and other media practitioners. I am also interested in new quali-quantitative methods and algorithmic ethnography methods to better understand algorithms' implications on today's media.
