Before joining the URRlab team as a postdoctoral researcher, Kadi Kalm worked as a researcher in the Department of Geography at University of Tartu with a background in human geography and regional planning. She defended her PhD thesis in 2018 and her PhD research focused on ethnic residential segregation and integration of the Russian-speaking population in Estonia. In general, her research has focused on spatial inequalities, domains of inter-ethnic contacts, trajectories of panel housing estates, ethnic identity and integration. Much of her work examines the mobility of immigrant population and changes in residential segregation in urban regions. She is mainly using census and register data and different statistical techniques for the analysis. She has previously worked as a visiting researcher at Delft University of Technology (in DEPRIVEDHOODS project). She holds a post-doc position in URRlab team until April 2021. The aim of her post-doctoral project is to uncover various development trajectories of housing estates and to compare the trajectories of housing estates in Estonia with the trajectories of housing estates in the Czech Republic. In addition, this research aims to understand the role of housing estates for new international immigrants.
