I am an assis­tant pro­fes­sor at the Insti­tute for Slav­ic Stud­ies at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Inns­bruck, Aus­tria and co-edi­tor of the Open Access Jour­nal Stud­ies in Russ­ian, Eurasian and Cen­tral Euro­pean New Media (digitalicons.org). Pre­vi­ous­ly, I have stud­ied Russ­ian Lit­er­a­ture and Applied Com­put­er Sci­ence in Salzburg, Moscow and Prague. My PhD the­sis at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Pas­sau focused on (auto-)biographical strate­gies of Russ­ian writ­ers on the inter­net and was pub­lished in 2020 as an Open Access mono­graph: Weav­ing Lives: (Auto-)Biographical Prac­tices of Russ­ian Authors on the Inter­net (in Ger­man, Biele­feld: Tran­script). My research inter­ests include Russ­ian, Pol­ish and Czech lit­er­a­ture from 1850 onward, recep­tion the­o­ry, (auto-)biography, new media, and dig­i­tal humanities.
