I am a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research Fellow at the University of Manchester and my project is on the Impact of Russian Nationalism on Russian Foreign Policy. I have obtained a Ph.D. on Russia's nationalist-patriotic opposition from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (Spain) and a Master in European Politics from the European University Viadrina (Germany). I have conducted research stays in Germany, the Netherlands, the U.S.A. and Russia. My research focuses on nationalism, the far right, social movements, Russia, Greece and European Politics.
