Before moving to Budapest, I had held a Junior Research Fellowship at St John's College Oxford and taught history as a Visiting Assistant Professor and Gerda Henkel Fellow at Sabancı University in Istanbul. At CEU, I offer courses centred around comparative approaches to the history of diplomacy and early modern empires as well as on broader topics on Russia and the Ottoman world.
