I study disinformation, censorship and political participation on social media. My PhD dissertation explores the role of civil society in producing and countering pro-Kremlin disinformation in the context of international conflict. I use methods from computational social science to explore topics in political sociology, political communication and international relations. You can read more about my work on my webpage,


More broadly, I am interested in:

-          Disinformation and propaganda

-          International conflict and social media

-          Russian and Ukrainian politics

-          Computational social science

-          Social networks


My work is part of the Digital Disinformation project, funded by the Carlsberg Foundation and directed by my supervisor, Rebecca Adler-Nissen. I am a member of the Copenhagen Center for Social Data Science (SODAS) and Digital Political Science Group. I have been a visiting scholar at New York University’s SMAPP lab under Joshua A. Tucker's supervision. I have also stayed at Waseda University as a research fellow and Tokyo University as a visiting student.


 I have previously designed and taught seminar courses titled 'Propaganda and Disinformation on Social Media' and 'Social Network Analysis'.
