Nadya holds an MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice from the University of Michigan-Dearborn and earned her BA in Educational Science from the University of Tuebingen. She has research expertise in matters of victimization as a consequence of technology use, with a focus on fake news and cyberbullying. In her master’s thesis, she focused on the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on cyberbullying experiences, perceived social isolation, and social media usage.
In July 2022, Nadya joined the AmeriCorps Urban Safety (AMUS) Program as a research technician responsible for conducting data analysis and literature reviews to establish an understanding of research associated with crime prevention. During this time, she supported AmeriCorps members on various AMUS projects, including the voter registration canvassing project. Nadya will now assume her role as a research assistant at the center. She enjoys yoga, hiking, and spending time with her husky puppy in her spare time.
