Bio

I'm originally from Berkeley, California, but I attended university and graduate school in the U.S. Northeast. My MA and PhD are from Princeton University in U.S. History. My PhD dissertation was on American responses to the modern European dictatorships and the development of the idea of totalitarianism as a way of explaining both far left and far right regimes.

Bio

In 2008 I earned my doctorate degree at the University of Leipzig, where I had also received my M.A. in 2001. Born and raised in Germany, and still living here, I enjoy traveling – including study trips to the U.S., Italy, and Greece, or vacations in Russia and North Africa. My field of interests stretches from literature of every shade via art and art history to the natural sciences along with their history and philosophy. However, I am equally dedicated to cats, music, and movies.
