About Me

I am a research fellow at the school of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Tartu. I hold a PhD in History from the European University Institute. My research and publications broadly focus on:

  • The territories of the former Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the northwestern Russian Empire in the 19th and 20th centuries, the independent states of Estonia, Latvia, and Belarus;
  • The history of cartography, mapping and geographical sciences;
  • The politics of language and nationalism, ethnolinguistic minorities, sub-national and regional identifications;
  • Borders, borderlands, and borders regions; physical and imagined borders;
  • The politics of memory;
  • Social history of religion.
