Research Summary

Moscow under Construction: City-Building, Place-Based Protest, and Civil Society, Lexington Books, 2016: a book about the transformation of urban space in the Russian capital. I discuss the city’s changing morphology, the city government’s development strategy, socio-spatial change, grass-roots opposition to the redevelopment program, and reform of the planning process.

Research Statement

My next goal is to publish an article about the controversy over a program to build Orthodox churches in Moscow parks.  Following that I will update my research on the development of New Moscow, also for an article.  After that I will begin writing a book about mobility issues and citizenship in Moscow.
