Liubov V. Borisova

I'm a sociologist with a specialisation in health and health care in Europe and advanced statistical methods. Besides, I am an academic writing coach and mentor.


My skills


I am proficient in advanced statistical analysis (multilevel analysis, SEM, panel), and in programming several statistical packages (Stata, R, MPlus, SPSS).

Teaching and Presentation

I have extensive teaching experience in teaching sociology, qualitative and quantitative methods, and academic writing to BA, MA, and PhD students. I also have developed presentation skills, and enjoy public speaking.


My primary research interests shape around sociology of health, but my broader interests also include well-being and social isolation of migrant and minority groups.

Academic Writing

I have qualifications in academic writing, and enjoy writing research papers. Over the years, I have developed my method and have taught it to others.
