Lecturer in Modern European (Russian) History, Cardiff University

I am a history of modern Russia and the Soviet Union, focusing on the relationship between Leninist ideology and political violence, and the intellectual history of Soviet state violence. I am the author of a monograph on violence in Lenin's political thought (Routledge, 2012), and I have published articles in academic journals such as Slavic Review and Historical Research.
