Description of research and teaching

I have a PhD in political history at the University of Helsinki. My research interests include contemporary politics and contemporary history of Russia-EU relations, with a focus on the agency of the countries in-between. My current project focuses on the dissolution of the socialist bloc and the beginnings of East European' regimes integration into the West. 

I teach at Master's level on European politics, and I supervise theses on issues related to integration and foreign trade politics.
