Research:

As a former television and Internet journalist, United Nations Development Programme communication professional, and a media scholar, I am fascinated by unfolding opportunities for development of participatory society in Ukraine with the rise of new media, and deeply intrigued by the changing relationship between the state and the civil society in the digital era.

My current research navigates the new media landscape in Ukraine with a focus on public service media, grassroots digital start-ups and social media campaigns, which aim to provide new mechanisms for public control and advance informed citizen-led solutions for striking social issues. The project seeks to understand how the architecture and affordances of digital media, enabling wide-scale public participation in production and circulation of information in the digital public space, is contributing to the development of civil society and acting an instrument for what I call public ‘self-service’.

With my interdisciplinary research at the crossroads of internet studies, politics, sociology and public policy, I aim to address larger theoretical concerns such as changing public identity online, emerging digital citizenry, the affordances of digital media as a space for public discussions, and the role of digital organisations (such as Facebook, Twitter, Google etc) in mediating online communications, influencing social and political discourses, and contributing to development of civil society in Ukraine.
