Culture and Education


I am a researcher working on early-Soviet and modernist Anglo-American literatures in their cultural, scientific, and biomedical contexts. I am currently writing a monograph titled Viktor Shklovsky's Involuntary Modernism: Writing and Other Bodily Functions (under contract with Bloomsbury Academic).

I am based in Stockholm, with my project "Revolutionary Diets: Famine, Science, and Literature in Early Soviet Russia" being funded by The Swedish Research Council. In 2025 I will start work on new my project "Experimental Animals: Non-Human Agency in Early-Soviet Film, Literature and Theory" supported by a grant from the Baltic Sea Foundation (Sweden).

I earned my doctorate at the University of Manchester and have been a postdoctoral fellow at the New Europe College in Bucharest, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, and Center for Advanced Studies in Sofia. I was also employed as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie research fellow at the University of Warsaw. My work has been published in Transcultural Studies, Comparative Critical Studies, and Poetics Today. Most recently my article, "The Chaplin Vaccine: Immunization and Taylorism in Viktor Shklovsky’s Theory and Fiction", was accepted for publication in Modernism/modernity.

DiVA (Digitala Vetenskapliga Arkivet) is Södertörn University's system for digital publishing and for registering publications produced by researchers, teachers and students.
