I am a History PhD candidate and teaching fellow at the City University of New York Graduate Center, as well as an adjunct instructor at The Cooper Union. My doctoral research examines the relationship between memory politics and right-wing extremism in Germany since unification. Related and peripheral research topics include: Post-1989 European politics; the role of the military in unified Germany; memory and nostalgia in contemporary Russia and the former GDR; disinformation campaigns; post-dramatic theatre and the performance of European memory.
I teach/have taught classes on Nazi Germany and its Aftermath, Comparative Fascisms, The Making of Modern Society, and most recently Global Politics since 1989. I have published articles on neo-Nazi violence in the early years of German unification, and the erasure of East German memory (see ‘CV’ for more).
I also hold an MA in History and a BA (Hons) in Theatre & Performance, both from Goldsmiths, University of London.
Non-academic pursuits include photography, when inspiration strikes (see ‘Fragments’).
