I am a historian of contemporary European history, specialised in the history of East-Central Europe and of Romania in particular, and interested in transnational history and memory studies across the European spaces, with special interest for the Baltic and Eastern Europe.

Upon award of my doctoral degree (Södertörn University, 2016), I have conducted research on the fundraising activities of the Catholic Church in favour of Ireland. The research was co-financed by the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet), through the project The Moral Economy of Global Civil Society (Institute of Contemporary History, School of Historical and Contemporary Studies, Södertörn University) for which I have been associate researcher (2017) and the Department of Political Sciences of Roma of Tre University, where I continued my research as post-doctoral researcher (2018).

Since 2019 until 2021 I am conducting research on the Romanian far right memory politics within the research project Memory Politics in far Right Europe: Celebrating Nazi-Collaborationists in post-1989 Belarus, Romania, Flanders, and Denmark, financed by the Foundation for Baltic and East European Studies (Östersjöstiftelsen) and based at the Institute of Contemporary History, School for Historical and Contemporary Studies, Södertörn University.

In 2021 I will lead the research project "Competing Visual Representations of the Future in Times of Environmental Consciousness", focused on how still-to-be-realised infrastructures were drawn in the Danish and Swedish printed media (1970-2000), financed by Ridderstads stiftelsen för historisk grafisk forskning and based at the Institute of Contemporary History, School for Historical and Contemporary Studies, Södertörn University.
