Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests focus on the following:

  • Eurocentric History
  • Genocide Studies
  • 20th and 21st Century Human Rights Violations & Prevention
  • Propaganda Development
  • Digital Media’s Impact on History (both Past and Present)
  • Authoritarian Regimes and the subsequent resistance movements they birth.

In addition to my interest in digital media, I am intrigued by the interdisciplinary development of memes and I aim to study how society’s cancel culture, sustained by said digital media, exists in all forms – the just, unjust and neutral.

Regions of particular interest include

  • Germany
  • The Soviet Union/ Russian Federation
  • Former Yugoslavia
  •  The United States in the 20th and 21st centuries

My Ph.D. research revolves around the comparison of 20th-century Authoritarian Governments (specifically Nazism) and the United States (specifically Trumpism), within a global context. Through a micro-analysis within different mediums of media (Tiktok versus Cinema, Reddit versus written publication, Twitter versus spoken word), the hope is to connect traditional authoritarianism with a modern new form and how the concept of a meme is ever-changing - a mutation of itself.
