MA Candidate
20th Century German and Soviet History



BA (Hons) Contemporary Studies and History from University of King’s College/Dalhousie


I am studying Soviet history and I did my Undergrad thesis on East German memory politics in relation to the Stasi and history’s impact on the present. I am studying under Dr. Rebecca Manley. I’ve always been interested in history but my fascination with the Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, and Germany arose during High School. When not found studying I can be found practicing aerial acrobatics or reading.
