My research is concerned primarily with socio-spatial identities and how they are shaped by ethnicity, borders, territorialization, and popular discourses thereof. My regional interests lie broadly in Russia and the former Soviet Union, although my graduate research has been principally focused upon Crimea and Siberia.
