I am a writer and journalist specialising in Eurasia and the Post-Soviet space. My work has appeared in The Moscow Times, Russian Art & Culture, and The Calvert Journal among others.

I was previously a Staff Intern at the Kennan Institute (Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, Washington D.C.) with a double Masters in Post-Soviet Politics & Security from University College London’s School of Slavonic & East European Studies and The Higher School of Economics (Moscow). I also hold a First-Class BA in English Literature from King’s College London.

A native English speaker, I also speak French and Russian. In my spare time, I enjoy classical singing, and exploring cities through their coffee shops.
