Academic. After navigating the intricacies of the doctoral labyrinth at the University of Cambridge (2010-2014), I spent a year at the Center for Historical Research at the Higher School of Economics in St. Petersburg, Russia, on a postdoctoral fellowship (2014-2015). Here are some thoughts about experiencing Russia as a 'Ukrainianist' at this turbulent time: in English (European Council on Foreign Relations) and in Russian ("Snob"). Then I joined the Einstein Forum in Germany as the 2015 Einstein Fellow. Here is the story that resulted from my project there, and here is some advice for future applicants.

Professional. I returned to school in 2010, after a number of years in the professional world — most recently, at the United Nations Development Programme (Bratislava Regional Centre for Europe and CIS) and the Children's Defense Fund (Washington DC). My very first job, if one doesn't count internships, was with the International Helsinki Federation for Human Rights in Vienna, where I processed my colleagues' fieldwork notes from Chechnya and Ingushetia into reports in 2004.
