He is interested in a social history of the Soviet 1970s that could begin to bridge the gap between the reductive narrative of “stagnation” and the nostalgic emphasis on “stability.” His dissertation project is tentatively titled “Over-Developed Socialism? Growing Industrial Cities in the Era of Deindustrialization.” His research has been supported by a Fulbright US Student Research Grant, a visiting fellowship at the German Historical Institute in Warsaw, FLAS and ACLS language study grants.
