I am a historian of Russia, the Soviet Union, and Eurasia. Currently, I am a Ph.D. student in History at the University of Pennsylvania. Before my doctoral studies, I was a community college history professor and secondary teacher. 

My public writing analyzes the linkages of race, foreign policy, and culture in the United States, Russia, and Ukraine.


I currently host the New Books Network Russia and Central Asia channels. I am also a book review editor for H-Ukraine (an H-Net Network). 

You can book me for speaking engagements here.

*Note: I am currently booking for the Fall 2021 semester.
