Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

As an assistant professor in Russian and Eurasian Studies, I utilize my background in political science and expertise in digital humanities to explore the transformation of political governance in response to the changing natural and technological environments.
Substantively, I focus on tackling two questions: (1) How can we study the digital transformation of state and society? and (2) What is the added value of area studies in understanding the digital transformation?
Through my research, I seek to encourage students, scholars and practitioners to take advantage of constantly growing amounts of data to gain new insights. My teaching includes courses on regional governance, digital methods in human sciences and mixed methods research design.
My past work on maritime transportation and energy focused on policymaking activities of private actors, environmental sustainability and large infrastructure governance.  My current work takes inspiration from cognitive science and psychology of decision-making to explore the mechanisms underpinning public governance in different contexts.
