I am a researcher (social sciences) and teacher (languages). My projects include short documentary films, exhibitions and photography. My work has centred around urban culture and transformation and I have focussed on the Soviet Union and Russia. Recently, I have focused on memoryscapes, cultures and politics of remembrance (WWII) – the diversity of memory practices relating to “Victory Day” in the post-Soviet space and Israel.

The heart of my professional activities is devising different formats for presenting content to engage a range of different audiences. I love working with exhibitions and documentary films, and also work for print and web publications, learning resources and public presentations.
