Do you want high-quality research that answers the questions that matter to you? Are you pivoting to a new challenge or topic and need a deeper understanding of an issue or environment?

I have been researching Russian and Eurasian media, politics, and society for over 15 years. I have unique subject-matter expertise and a proven track-record of peer-reviewed publications on security issues. And I am skilled at employing sophisticated tools, techniques, and tradecraft to answer diverse analytic questions.

If you need a literature review that synthesises existing knowledge; a professional open-source investigation into a threat actor that finds reliable information and preserves digital evidence; a bespoke analysis that delivers unique insights into a pressing issue; or a professional briefing, I can design a solution to suit you.

Data collection & fact checking

Let’s be honest: Not everyone loves collecting data! Sometimes, you just want to skip straight to the analysis.

The good news? I love data collection! What’s more, I’m very good at it. I draw on advanced database skills and systematic approaches to ensure that the information I collect is comprehensive and reliable.

So let me eliminate tedious tasks from your to-do list, so you can spend more time on the parts of the project that you actually enjoy doing. Whether you need someone to find information or test a hypothesis, I can help.

Annie Dillard once wrote: “how we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” And you are probably spending more of your days and therefore your life than you want on emails and meetings.

I have extensive project management experience that can save you time and reduce your stress. I am extremely organised and effectively leverage productivity systems and tools.

Allow me to design and implement your project, deliver on your objectives, and assist you in having the impact you want.
