I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.
My research focuses on the broad area of historical sociology and the political economy of capitalist development in East-Central Europe. Specifically, I am interested in the post-communist transformations in the Baltic states, forms of resistance against neoliberal restructuring of East-Central Europe and the Former Soviet Union, and analytical concepts in historical materialism.
My articles, book reviews, and commentaries have been published in various journals, including the Economic and Labour Relations Review, Journal of Baltic Studies, Journal of Central and Eastern Europe, Global Political Economy, Europe-Asia Studies, Historical Materialism, Political Studies Review, Journal of Soviet & Post-Soviet Politics & Society, Progress in Political Economy, and Jacobin.
I am also the editor of LŪŽIS magazine and a member of the editorial board for the Alternatives journal.
I am a member of the Association for the Advancement of Baltic Studies and the British Association for Slavonic and Eastern European Studies.
