Nataliya Mykhalchenko is a recent Master of Research graduate in Social Research, Law and Legal Studies from Birkbeck, University of London, and is currently an Intern at the United Nations Populations Fund. Her research interests include financial transparency and accountability, as well as women’s health and empowerment. As one major area of her work, Nataliya researched anti-fraud measures in several African countries since 2015. First, as part of a five-week funded Leeds University Summer Research Internship Scheme, then with support from the Review of African Political Economy (ROAPE) journal. She was an International Development student at the School of Politics and International Studies at the time, graduating in 2016.  The work was informed by the ongoing research of Dr. Jörg Wiegratz on the political economy (and moral economy) of anti-fraud measures in neoliberalised society. As part of the collaboration, Nataliya has to date co-authored two ROAPE briefings on anti-fraud measures in Southern and Eastern Africa (with a third briefing in preparation) and a number of blog publications.
