Working in Transitioning Societies

Agricultural production situated within the heart of inter ethnic conflicts and environmental changes, results in massive outward migration patterns and shifts of cultural dynamics of former Soviet Union and Yugoslavian societies. The recent shifts of outward migration in Eurasia and the Balkans displays a complexity of social, cultural, environmental, and political issues. My reserach examines these complex dynamics from a geographic lens that is spatial and empirical.
