Biography

I am a second year doctoral student, specializing in International History. I graduated from Sciences Po (Paris Institute of Political Studies) in 2018 and obtained an M.A. in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies at the University of Texas of Austin in 2020.

My research focuses on the Cold War and, more specifically, the relationship between détente, European integration, decolonization, and political ideologies, during the 1960s and the 1970s. I am also interested in the intersection between intellectual debates surrounding European integration, and its effects on policymaking in both East and West.
