I am an environmental historian that specialises on the history of climate change research in Russia during Cold War and beyond. 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 that was formed into a book 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.
