I’m a graduate student in the History Department, currently in the middle of my (gulp) fifth year. My work focuses on cultural life under socialism, especially in Poland and East Germany after the Second World War. I grew up in Moscow, Russia, and arrived in Princeton via England, France, Austria, and Virginia. Outside of Firestone, I’m a rabid sports fan with an inexplicable but undying affection for the Jacksonville Jaguars. I’m also a butterfly collector, an avid cyclist, and a lover of the pig in its many delicious forms. Come find me in the Wilson dining hall!
