Cambridge Reproduction


My work centres on historical and sociological study of reproduction, with a specific focus on social relations and population politics. My research spans a broad geography covering Ukraine, the Netherlands and the UK, where I have experience conducting fieldwork, as well as adopts a cross-national comparative perspective, which I started developing in the course of working for the UNFPA.

Currently, I am a British Academy Newton International Fellow at the University of Cambridge working on the project 'The ART of conception'.

I am also a convenor of the CRASSH Research Network ‘Health, Medicine and Agency‘, and a member of ‘Changing in/fertilities‘ international network based in the Reproductive Sociology Research Group (ReproSoc) at the University of Cambridge.

Outside of Cambridge, I am an affiliated scholar at the Radboud Group for Historical Demography and Family History (Radboud University Nijmegen), and at the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demography Institute (NIDI).

I hold BA and MA degrees in History and Theory of Sociology from the University of Lviv, Ukraine, and a PhD in Historical Sociology from Wageningen University (a joint degree with Radboud University) in the Netherlands.
