Since 2018 he is a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Stuttgart, Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning, focused on the study of urban policy mobilities for understanding the process of transferring strategic spatial planning — an approach which was originated in the global North and has been introduced in the specific context of contemporary Ukrainian cities.

In 2016-2017 he worked for two GIZ projects in Ukraine — ‘Integrated Urban Development’ and ‘National Urban Development Policy (NUDP)’ as a Chief Urban Researcher and External Consultant on Urban Planning and Urban Management.
