Year of Enrollment: 

I am a doctoral candidate in Comparative Gender Studies. I hold a Bachelor's and Master’s degrees in Philosophy from Al-Farabi Kazakh National University (Kazakhstan, Almaty).

My major field of inquiry is critical cultural studies in art praxis. At the core of my doctoral research is craft economy and labour in the post-soviet capitalist art system; I analyse this theme through the prism of social semiotics, critical art histories, and theories of cultural economy.
