What are your research interests and/or subject of your thesis?

I love looking at how various national identities, cultures and memories in the region intersect and interact with each other.

What do you enjoy most about the Harriman experience?

The people. Practically everyone around the Harriman Institute is incredibly supportive and encouraging. Especially in challenging moments.

What is your favorite experience related to the region?

There are too many to count, but the first one to come to mind is consulting on the 2019 Ukrainian National Presidential Debates. I have so many interesting stories from that time.
