Since 2012 she has been a PhD student in Eastern European history at the University of Basel, Switzerland. Her PhD-project deals with visual representations of multiethnicity in late Imperial Russia. Her research focuses on the images of the Empire's indigenous population of Central Asia and the relationship between pictures and ethnographic knowledge in the age of spreading photography.
