My research deals mostly with contacts between the Second and Third Worlds during the Cold War and its aftermath, the role of culture and religion in international relations, and the role of both Latin America and Russia in the global history of the late 20th century. I have recently published a book, with Cambridge University Press, which explores Latin American encounters with the Soviet Union and the ways in which arts and culture shaped how people made sense of the Global Cold War. In a follow up project, I am currently examining the impact of Chilean economic reforms under the military dictatorship on the transformation of Eastern European states around 1989.
