Biography

Before joining UCL I was the Clayman Junior Research Fellow in Politics at the University of Oxford, and held a Fulbright-Schuman predoctoral fellowship at Columbia University in the city of New York. I have a DPhil in Politics and an MPhil in Russian and Eastern European Studies from the University of Oxford.

Research

My research interests include public opinion, protests, and authoritarian politics. Drawing on evidence from Russia, I examine how nondemocratic incumbents use propaganda and nonviolent repression to lower the costs of staying in power. Other projects study the political consequences of migrant remittances, with a focus on Central Asia.

Teaching
  • I teach modules in comparative politics, protest and revolution.
  • I would be interested in supervising students working on authoritarian and contentious politics, the politics of the post-Soviet region, and economic voting.
