Personal profile

Research Biography

My research examines the environmental, medical, social, and cultural history of Modern Russia and the Soviet Union in transnational, international, and global context. I am especially interested in the history of environment and health, nature protection, urban planning, maritime environments, and culture.

Before coming to Flinders, I was a post-doctoral fellow at Birkbeck College, University of London, working on the Wellcome Trust project 'The Reluctant Internationalists: A History of Public Health and International Organisations, Movements and Experts in Twentieth Century Europe'. I am a member of the Centre for the Study of Internationalism at Birkbeck College, University of London. I am also a Center Associate at the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies at Harvard University.

I am the curator of a special forum on 'The Black Sea World and the Question of Boundaries', published in Kritika: Explorations in Russian and Eurasian Studies in 2018, which draws on a workshop that I convened on 'The Black Sea in the Socialist World' at Birkbeck in 2015.
