As my (slightly out of date) bio on JMC's website attests, I returned to teaching 5 years ago, after nearly 20 years of doing policy related research in Washington, DC, Russia and (former Soviet) Central Asia. Having started my long academic career doing quantitative history, I've decided to spend the concluding years, by developing a multi-year digital humanities project creating " A Living Archive of the Collapse of the USSR and It's Aftermath" with JMC students and along with some colleagues at Harvard's Davis Center.
