Academic background: In 2013 I completed the bachelor program Transcultural Communication at KFU Graz. The topic of my thesis was how Russian state media portrayed power structures and morality in reports about Pussy Riot. Thereafter, I started the master program Global Studies at KFU Graz. My emphasis is on Human Rights, international law and environmental aspects of globalization. I am currently writing my master?s thesis on the freedoms of expression and assembly on the internet and legal restrictions thereof. In the course of my studies I had internships in Austria, Russia (2012) and Lithuania (2015), and studied abroad in Georgia (2015/16).
