Biography

I am a first year doctoral student, specializing in International History. I graduated from Sciences Po (Paris Institute of Political Studies) in 2018 and obtained an M.A. in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies at the University of Texas of Austin in 2020.

My research focuses on the foreign relations of the European Community during the Cold War. I am also interested in how policymakers and intellectuals throughout the Cold War, on both sides of the Iron Curtain and beyond, defined European space, and how their ideas influenced European integration.
