Sociology + Data Science + Space

I am a PhD candidate at the department of Sociology& Criminology at the University of Iowa. I study emotions, gender, and status in space analog environments (download my CV here ). I speak Lithuanian, Russian, and a bit of Georgian and German.

When I am not behind my computer, I bike, swim, and read.

Do you have questions that are not covered in this blog? Do you want to chat about my research? Do you have a great project idea and I am a great fit for the team? Or are you new to Iowa City area and wondering about the best bike paths around? Send me an email or DM on Twitter or connect with me on LinkedIn.


Oct 1, 2020 I submitted a co-authored paper (with Dr. Alison Bianchi) to Acta Astronautica.
Jul 25, 2020 I moved my blog from to GitHub Pages.
May 1, 2020 I received a research grant from the Midwest Sociological Society to study emotions in a space analog environment.
