Sociology PhD Student

Yana joined Northeastern’s Sociology Department in the fall of 2019. She is originally from Central Asia and completed her undergraduate degrees in Economics and Political Science at the American University in Bulgaria. Currently, she is studying right wing populist movements in Western democracies. Yana is exploring the degree to which financial anxiety and economic insecurity fuel cultural resentment and out-group hostility. In particular, she is interested in whether job insecurity exacerbates competition and resentment among voters.
