I conduct my research in Russia with a Finno-Ugric minority. Being in Tartu makes my job easier since I can easily get a visa and travel to Russia when needed. I have already been twice this year to present my PhD dissertation and attend a festival and will go again for fieldwork and a conference.

What was surprising for you when you moved to Estonia?
The people were friendlier than I thought they might be. The progress in restoring buildings and roads in just the seven year span that I have been visiting Estonia has been remarkable. How long the ice and snow remained on the ground. Despite that mothers walk their babies in strollers in all seasons of the year! And there are walking paths everywhere throughout the country!
