About Me


Why does a mushroom have so many friends? Because he's a fungi.


Just moved back to Lithuania where I work as a researcher at the local university.

Right now trying to master that nordic witchcraft language some people call "Estonian". Working on my PhD in Political Science at a German university while carrying out my reserach project in the Baltic countries on minority identity processes during post-war identity construction.

Finished my undergrad in development studies, but switched to eu/russian studies for my masters now at the
University of Tartu, European College. Inbetween schools I worked as an politics analyst for my government in Washington DC, focusing on the relationship between academics and politics.
