Current Research

My research looks at corruption and the early soviet state. My present study focuses on the soviet foreign trade system in 1918-1924. I consider what the corrupt practices prevalent within it can add to our understandings of the early soviet state in terms of how they came about and official attitudes towards them. I am also interested in what kinds of people were likely to engage in corruption and why. My work has implications for broader understandings of corruption and Russia.
