Assistant Professor of History and Politics, Thompson Rivers University

My research focuses on the 20th century history of Russia and the Soviet Union, focusing on the Gulag during the Stalin era. My book, "Stalin's Gulag at War: Forced Labour, Mass Death, and Soviet Victory in the Second World War," is forthcoming with the University of Toronto Press (expected October 2018). I have written on the Gulag for journals including the Russian Review, the Journal of the History of Sexuality, and Canadian Slavonic Papers, and for anthologies published by the University of Pittsburgh Press and by Routledge.
I teach mostly on Russian and European history and politics, but also on global topics such as the concentration camp in comparative perspective, and environmental history.
