Kristina was a Research Associate at the Urban Institute and within the Sheffield-Manchester Local Interaction Platform from August 2018 to September 2019. Her work within the Realising Just Cities research programme focused on what 'just' sustainability means for Sheffield and local implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Other research and publications have focused on: urban residents' views on intergenerational justice, consumption and sustainability; media representations of sustainability; local narratives and moral geographies of climate change; and intergenerational community-based research. She has an MA and a PhD in social geography from the University of Leeds, where her research focussed on voluntary sector ethnography and youth participation. Before joining the University of Sheffield as a postdoctoral researcher in 2015, Kristina worked for The Young Foundation's 'Socially Sustainable Leeds' project, which combined ethnographic research and community organising.
