I conduct research on nationalism, state-building processes, and international affairs with a focus on post-Soviet Eurasia.

In my doctoral dissertation External link., I examined the efforts of the Georgian government following the Rose Revolution to integrate two borderlands, one populated by Armenians (Javakheti) and the other by Azeris (Kvemo Kartli). I have earlier worked as an analyst for the Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI External link.), as a postdoc (SYLFF Fellow External link.) at the Department of Government, Uppsala University, and as a researcher at the Department of Security Studies, Charles University External link..

At present, I serve as principal investigator for two research projects. One with funding from Formas: "Planning for Integration: Landscapes of Power in Borderland Governance" [InBorder] External link. and the other with funding from Östersjöstiftelsen: "Conscription as Political Socialization in Divided Societies? Evidence from post-Soviet Estonia and post-independence Finland" [CoDS] External link..

My recent articles have been published in Journal of Political and Military Sociology External link., Problems of Post-Communism External link., Nationalism and Ethnic Politics External link., Europe-Asia Studies External link., and Dynamics of Asymmetric Conflict External link..

I am associated with the International Centre for Defence and Security (ICDS External link.) in Tallinn, and have earlier been a Fulbright scholar at Harvard University's Davis Center External link. for Russian and Eurasian Studies.
