I arrived at CREES after studying economics in Dortmund and a Master's degree at SSEES in London. Being a German student of the 1980s, I was inspired by both the peace movement and Gorbachev's policy of konversiya. After four years of studying under the close supervision of Julian Cooper, I left with a PhD and an enthusiasm for Russian military aircraft.

I joined CREES in October 2004 to start my PhD on post-conflict Serbia. This was a very interesting time for the Western Balkan region and pursuing a research project on the topic at a place like CREES was very rewarding. PhD students received excellent supervision and research training, but above all we felt we were a part of a lively intellectual community.

Description
After taking an MA and PhD at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies in London, I defected to the Midlands to teach Russian History at CREES in 1999. After taking over responsibility for first the Masters programme, and then the PhD programme at CREES, I grew increasingly envious of the students and ex-students (including many of my colleagues) who were able to include the fantastic Russian language programmes in their studies and hence reached a far better level of Russian than I have ever managed.

Having spent the last 20 years at CREES, arriving there in 1993 to do a part-time M.Sc, I have witnessed people come and go, academic structures evolve, buildings go up, décor date and hairs grey. But one thing has endured: the relentless commitment of my colleagues, past and present, to this complex and still misunderstood part of the world.
