I have recently (Spring 2021) finished my Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of Pittsburgh, with a concentration in Comparative Politics and American politics. I am a big fan of Elinor Ostrom, and, along with the Swedish economist Knut Wicksell, her work inspires my research. In my previous life I was a network and voice/data integration engineer, and I also have a Master of Economics degree from University of Bergen, where I studied cooperative information games. My CV can be found here: Pronin_Kira_CV.

I also love Jugendstil architecture, so you see a lot of examples on this web site. Most photos were taken in Helsinki, my hometown.
