My research deals with Mediterranean, Slavic, and Eastern Orthodox studies, in particular Russia’s interest in the Near East, starting in the eighteenth century. Currently I am working on projects related to Russian consuls and a study of Count Grigorii A. Stroganov (1770-1857), the Russian ambassador to Spain, Sweden, and the Ottoman Empire. I offer courses on imperial and modern Russia, the Balkans and the Ottoman Empire, Greece (ancient and modern), modern Europe, and the history of socialism. I regularly teach courses on the era of World War II and Nazi Germany, and online courses.
