My research has examined political violence and security in Russia and Eurasia. I have expertise in the following subjects:

  • The North Caucasus insurgency
  • Russian-speaking foreign fighters
  • Ideologies and political violence
  • Social movements and social protest
  • Insurgent leadership and ‘state-building’
  • Violent and nonviolent strategies of resistance
  • Russian and Eurasian private military companies
  • Russian foreign and security policy
  • Research ethics
  • Qualitative research skills

You can find my academic and non-academic publications in the Publications tab. The majority are free to access, but please contact me if you are not able to access any — I will be happy to send you a copy.
