As the publications below suggest, I’ve developed an eclectic research agenda over the past several years. Traditionally, my research has focused on Russian foreign policy and the politics of conflict and cooperation with regards to scarce environmental resources. In recent years, however, I have found myself increasingly interested in the intersection of popular culture and politics. After writing a pair of articles using the zombies and vampires featured in works of pop culture to explore various political questions, I am currently working on a project that explores the depiction of bureaucratic order in the 2013 video game Papers, Please.
