Diliara is a PhD candidate in the CORPNET research group. Her current project is on global networks of business elites. Using a large-scale temporal dataset of inter-corporate connections and network analysis techniques, she wants to know how networks of business elites are structured, how do they evolve over time, and what do these networks tell us about the distribution of corporate power in the world.
Before joining UvA, Diliara worked at the Laboratory for Institutional Analysis of Economic Reforms in Moscow and at Sociology of Education and Science Laboratory in St Petersburg, studying social and peer influence in student friendship networks.
