Since 2012 I have been pursuing PhD studies in Communication at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. Previously, I earned a BA in Business and Political Journalism (2009) and an MA in Media Management (2011) at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow, Russia. I also hold an MA in Nationalism Studies (2012) from the Central European University in Budapest, Hungary. Both of my graduate theses explored various aspects of nation branding. Coming from a journalism background, I have interned and worked as a freelance journalist and producer for the likes of Reuters, The Los Angeles Times, BBC radio and television, CNN International, Showtime, and others.
My research interests include, but are not limited to cultural and public diplomacy, cultural economy and creative industries, nationalism and national identity, nation branding.
