Kateryna’s research interests include social, spatial and aesthetic transformation of urban environments and dwellings after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Kateryna is a co-director of an ongoing project called The Places of Revolution, about the spatial narratives of urban protests, and the 2013-2014 Ukrainian Revolution.  The goal of this project is to reveal the hidden narratives and complexity of urban protests overshadowed by the often unilateral representation in the conventional media. In 2015 The Places of the Revolution project has received a Collaborative Research Projects Grant Writing Award from the Digital Humanities Lab at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Kateryna is also a collaborator in the creation of architectural history teaching modules for the Global Architectural History Teaching Collaborative (GAHTC) grant, Fall 2015. A network of scholars administered by MIT's School of Architecture and Planning, GAHTC is aimed at creating global perspective content for teaching base level courses in Architectural History. 

Kateryna’s design interests include place making approaches, architecture and urban design. In particular, she is interested in architectural analysis and response to extraordinary or traumatic urban experiences.

In the past she has taught studio, theory and history classes in architecture.
