Katherine Mansourova is currently working with Professor Susanne Wengle. She conducts research assistance for Professor Wengle on her project on the transformation of Russia’s agrofood system. Mansourova collects data from Russian and English sources for Professor Wengle’s analysis on the causes and effects of the post-Soviet transformation of food systems and rural economies. Mansourova looks forward to continuing to merge her two interests of business and political science and utilize her Russian language skills to better understand the causes of the rise of inequality in post-Soviet countries starting with understanding the changes in rural economies.
