Denis Eckert works as a researcher in the areas of regional and urban geography as well as science and technology studies. His current research is focused on spatial patterns of academic research & innovation at global and European scales. He has previously done comparative research on the EU, and on Post-communist states of FSU (mainly Russia). He has recently supervised doctorates on visualization techniques and cartography and global geography of science. He is currently developing new research on contemporary Ukraine: migrations of high-skilled persons (students and workforce), bordering processes.
