Marta Choroszewicz (DSSc) is a postdoctoral researcher in sociology. She works at the Department of Social Sciences at the University of Eastern Finland, Joensuu Campus, Finland.

The thesis is available at:

Choroszewicz has taught courses on qualitative and quantitative methods, sociology of gender and the relationships between gender, work and labor migration. Her research interests also includes gender dynamics in the legal profession, professionalisation processes and professionalism, exclusion and inclusion mechanisms in the organisations and professions, gender equality in working life and comparative research. In autumn 2016 (Sept-Dec), she undertook a research visit at Teluq in Montreal (Montreal, Canada).

Currently she is involved in two projects. The first project "GENDER, CAREER AND LAW: integrating parenting to the demanding legal career in Finland and Canada" examines: 1) changes in the legal work in late capitalism, 2) work-life reconciliation in the legal profession, 3) progression and integration in the legal profession. She also participates in the developing of a new research project “Professionalization of Public Service Interpreting in the Context of Migrant Integration Work”, which analyzes the tensions in the professionalization of public service interpreting (PSI) in Finland and the role of PSI in promoting migrant integration.
