Personal profile

Research interests

I'm a historian interested in the Soviet collapse, the Baltic states, diasporas, transnational networks, international relations, collective memory, late socialism, and the post-Cold War transitions in the Baltic sea region. 

My first book "Politics of Uncertainty: the United States, the Baltic Question, and the Collapse of the Soviet Union" (OUP, 2023) investigates the triangular relations between the US government, Baltic independence movements, and Moscow during the perestroika years.  My current Academy of Finland research fellow project focuses on collective memory dynamics during the final years of the Soviet state. 

Curriculum vitae

Before joining Aleksnateri Inistute as an Academy of Finland research fellow I was a postdoctoral fellow at Cornell University, a teaching fellow at the LSE, and a postdoctoral researcher at the Academy of Finland-funded BALTRANS project (Political History discipline, Helsinki University). I hold a Ph.D. from Sciences Po Paris (2016)
