My research focuses on how the East European communists and Soviets created secret police in the political and social chaos following the Second World War. As a Max Weber fellow, I plan to expand my research to include transnational connections between the countries of the Eastern Bloc and the way that agents, expertise, surveillance, and technology moved across national boundaries. I hold an MA in Russian, East European, and Central Asian studies from Harvard University and a BA in history from Cornell University.
At Stanford, I taught a research and methods course on the history of communism in East Europe and worked as a teaching assistance for courses in modern East European, German, and American history.
