I am a fourth-year PhD Candidate studying modern intellectual, economic, and environmental history. My dissertation, "Socialist Rationalization of Nature: Environmental Regulation and the Development of Political Economy in the Soviet Union, 1965-91," argues that environmental programs in the late USSR were a key component of the attempts to modernize planned economy and revitalize moderating economic growth. My primary advisor is Anna Krylova, and my committee members include Dirk Bonker, Erika Weinthal, and Edward Balleisen.
