My research work has largely focused on health as a gendered phenomenon inclu ding topics such as interplay of various discourses around masculinity and health, lay interpretations of the causalities of health and illness, cultural comparisons of these interpretations, health in transitional societies (Russia, in particular) as well as the moral and ideological features of lifestyle in relation to health. In my post-doctoral project my research interests also include men's ageing, embodiment and consumption, with overall interest in ageing as a gendered process. Theoretically and methodologically my research draws on the sociology of health and illness as well as on critical, discursive gender studies.
