Working towards her doctoral thesis, Zsuzsa researched in Southern Slovakia on the question of changing positions of ethnicity in multiethnic settings, focusing on educational choices of families with mixed ethnic background, also discussing the everyday manifestations and practices of ethnic hybridity. While affiliated to the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology at CEU as a research fellow, she studied acts of citizenship of asylum seekers in Hungary, studying the ways in which EU regulations are interpreted and re-interpreted at the national level, and applied at the various stages of individual refugee applications. In a recent research, Zsuzsa has researched on the material cultural aspects of migration, investigating the everyday material representations of transnationalism, multilocal and multifocal identities. She is also interested in East-West migration, new aspects of transnationalism and circulatory migration in and to the EU. Her most recent project involvement at CPS focuses on linguistic diversity in the industrial relations in Hungary.
