I am a political scientist working in the field of European Studies with an interest for democracy, political communication, and political identity. I have obtained my PhD in political science with specialization in Comparative Politics and International Relations from the University of Maryland at College Park and my master from Northeastern University. I am the vice-chair of the Center for European Studies at Lund University as well as the program coordinator for the MA programs in European Studies.I have also worked as a US-based correspondent and political analyst for BBC Radio, Romanian Service and as a course coordinator at the Harvard Business School.


About the research

My current research has several orientations. One of them deals with memory conflicts in Europe after 1989. More concretely I want to study if the EU acts as a memory actor and how the EU defines the consequences of memory conflicts for integration. I am a member of the Nordic research network "Towards a Common Past?" and I have been part of a team that,under the leadership of Professor Barbara Törnquist-Plewa, formulated and wrote a grant proposal to the EC within the framework of the FP-7.
I also do research in the field of communication policy and political symbols. I am intersted in which graphic symbols have been developed by the EU in order to reach out and win over EU citizens. I also want to know how these citizens have received and interpreted these graphical symbolic message.
Other research interests at the moment encompass the relationship between literature/film and politicis in Romania, as well as the connection between religion and nationalism in secularized (or post-secular) societies such as Sweden.
