I am an environmental historian that specialises on the history of climate change research in Russia from the end of the 19th century throughout the 20th century. I am generally interested in how societies deal with crisis and disaster, and how the socio-political context shapes the way science is done. My PhD focused on the history of natural disasters in the Soviet Union and took the Armenian earthquake of 1988 as a case study to show how the inability of providing for its citizens harmed the political cohesion.
