N.A. (Nina) Conkova MSc
Nina Conkova is a PhD Candidate at the Department of Public Administration and Sociology.
Nina's research interests lie in the areas of social support, migration, depopulation and ageing. In 2012 Nina obtained her Master’s degree in Population Studies from the Graduate School of Spatial Sciences at the University of Groningen. Subsequently, Nina was a trainee at the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute and also worked as a freelancer at Population Europe / Max Plank Institute for Demographic Research.
In the past, Nina conducted research on rural depopulation and the experience of ageing and social support in Bulgaria. At present, Nina is researching the circumstances under which non-kin ties serve as a source of support in a European comparative perspective. The project employs quantitative and qualitative research methods and devotes special attention to Central and Eastern Europe.
