PhD, The University of Leeds
MA HRM, University of Bradford School of Management
Bachelor in Psychology, Vilnius University, LithuaniaI completed doctoral research project entitled 'Being a Migrant in the New Destination: the Analysis of Social and Labour Market Experiences of Migrants Residing in a Medium-Sized Northern English Town'.  It examined various aspects of migration (labour market entry, housing provision, formal and informal work) in the local context. I am a qualitative researcher and tend to use a wide range of techniques and methods to explore the migration process. Primarily, I am interested in individual and household experiences of labour mobility/migration. In my work, I was focused on the relation between post-socialist transformation in Central Eastern Europe, EU enlargement, UK migration policy and individual/family migration. Finally, I was involved in a separate research project looking at the representation of posted Central Eastern European workers in the old EU member states, particularly Germany. I am interested in the following topics:
    The role of family in the migration process
    Labour migration and labour mobility in the EU
    Ethnic intolerance
    HRM, work and society in Central Eastern Europe
