My research is focused on:

-          Disinformation and propaganda

-          International conflict and social media

-          Online censorship

-          Russian and Ukrainian politics

-          Computational social science

-          Social networks


My current research is part of the DIPLOFACE project, directed by Rebecca Adler-Nissen. I am a member of the Copenhagen Center for Social Data Science (SODAS) and Digital Political Science Group. I wrote my PhD thesis as a part of the Digital Disinformation project, funded by the Carlsberg Foundation. I was 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, respectively titled 'Propaganda and Disinformation on Social Media' and 'Social Network Analysis'. I will co-teach Advanced Social Data Science I in Spring 2021 as part of the new MSc programme in Social Data Science
