Teaching: I teach modern Russian and Soviet history and also teach in the women's and gender studies program.

Research: My research focuses on the linkages between individual, private lives and the momentous, often traumatic events of Russia's twentieth century. In two books, I examined early Soviet childhoods and the memory of World War II in Leningrad/St. Petersburg. International Communism and the Spanish Civil War, a study of the personal and political lives of communists, has just been published by Cambridge University Press.

Service: I have been particularly involved in assessment of student learning. I am committed to creating a positive environment for research on campus, and serve on the Office of Sponsored Research Advisory Council and the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee. I also do a lot of undergraduate advising.

Interests/Passions Outside of Academe: I live in Philadelphia, and love taking advantage of all that the city has to offer from parks to museums and theater. I also enjoy practicing yoga and hiking in locations near (Pine Barrens!) and far.

Times when I can meet: I could arrange to meet in West Chester on Monday, Wednesday or Friday mornings or other days (including weekends) in Philadelphia.
