Biography

I have a background in psychology and the liberal arts (BA Psychology, MA Arts & Sciences), and a PhD in New Media, Communication & Cultural Studies. My recent research focuses on memory and digital identity. I hold a particular interest in Tumblr.

My teaching draws broadly on cultural and communication theory, media and literary studies.

Beyond university life, I manage the Iaşi Academic Group, a research-led environmental protection initiative in Eastern Europe.
