I am a full-time lecturer in Politics and International Relations at a School of Economics and Political Science. I have a master’s degree in Russian and East European Studies from a world renowned University. During my postgraduate course I studied politics, economics, research methodology, history and sociology. At undergraduate level I studied Politics at a University in London. The course was focused on European history, philosophy and politics with a particular focus on the former Soviet Union. I am also currently studying Russian language at Moscow State University. During my free time I play football, sail and read.
