Dr. Yuliya Hilevych
Yuliya's work centers on the historical and sociological study of reproduction, with a specific focus on social relations, and health and population policies. Her research spans a broad geography covering Ukraine, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, where she has experience conducting fieldwork. Her research adopts a cross-national comparative perspective, which she started developing in the course of her work for the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
Currently, Yuliya is a British Academy Newton International Fellow in the Faculty of History, and an affiliated researcher at the Reproductive Sociology Research Group, both at the University of Cambridge. Outside of Cambridge, Yuliya is also an affiliated scholar at the Radboud Group for Historical Demography and Family History (Radboud University Nijmegen), and at the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demography Institute (NIDI).
Yuliya holds BA and MA degrees in Sociology from the University of Lviv in Ukraine, and a PhD in Historical Sociology from Wageningen University (a joint degree with Radboud University) in the Netherlands.
