Bio/Description

My research focuses on the transformation of rural societies under pressure from modernizing and globalizing forces. My dissertation, a microhistory of the Russian village of Ilim-gora in the early years of the Soviet Union, analyses peasant attempts to build governing institutions at the village level, sometimes alongside, sometimes in opposition to Soviet state-building efforts. Other research interests include the comparative history of peasantries and the global history of communism. Prior to coming to Princeton, I received a BA in history from Yale University and spent a year conducting research in Moscow with support from the Fox Fellowship.
