I focus on Eurasian empires from the Mongol invasions of the 13th century until the 19th century. In particular I focus on the Ottoman, Iranian, and Russian Empires.

My dissertation uses the Koroghlu Epic as a historical source for examining the trans-imperial space between these three empires in eastern Anatolia, the Caucasus, and western Iran. I mainly use sources in Turkish, Persian, Russian, and Armenian for my research.
