My dissertation explores the effect of Russian foreign messages on political attitudes in the United States and Europe, the unintended consequences of domestic politicization of international propaganda, and the impact of Western counter-messaging on political legitimacy in Russia. In doing so, my research contributes to understanding the micro-level effects of international propaganda, the lingering influence of disinformation on political attitudes, and the asymmetric foreign policy of autocracies.
