ABOUT ME

I am a sociocultural anthropologist interested in energy transition, the Cold War situation, international spectacles and infrastructures supporting energy markets and innovation.  I was brought up in Kazakhstan, then part of the USSR.  My academic career as an anthropologist has brought me to Canada, but I still focus on Kazakhstan for my research and writing.
