cover_photo_thumbnailI’m very honored to be profiled this spring in the latest issue of Harriman Magazine at Columbia University as an alum of the Harriman Institute (where I got my Master’s in Russian, Eastern European, and Central Asian Studies). With the current media obsession with the so-called Russian menace, it’s a perfect time to have my expertise in Russia and the former Soviet Union highlighted and shared — and I’m grateful. Amazing that what began as an attempt to get in touch with my Russian roots became a serious course of study, followed by many grants and experiences of living in every Central Asian Republic. Life is full of surprises.
