My Research and Teaching Interests include Russian and Soviet History, Modern European History, Comparative Empires, the History of Human Rights, and Russian-American Engagement.
I am currently completing a book about the role of the Soviet Union in the Nuremberg Trials and the postwar development of international law: Soviet Judgment at Nuremberg: A Cold War Story, forthcoming with Oxford University Press.
