Personal profile

Research interests

Through my work, I aim to spotlight people, places, and cases that are underrepresented, misrepresented, or simply ignored in academia.

I am an assistant professor at the Research Centre for Media and Journalism Studies at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.

I teach in the Media Studies BA programme and research social media in the context of Russia and Central Asia.

I enjoy riding my bike with my son in the baby seat, cooking for family and friends, playing with paint, and exploring new places.
