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.
