Research Interests

My main research interests include the Neo-protestant communities and the manner in which they were perceived by the totalitarian regimes in the 20th century Romania and the repressive mechanisms used by these regimes against those who opposed them. To this effect, I have conducted research in the archives of the secret police in Romania (CNSAS), in order to analyse the manner through which Antonescu’s dictatorship and the communist regime perceived the Baptist community and the methods used by the Siguranță/Securitate in order to assert control over it.
As part of a Research Scholarship Programme, organised by the Institute for the Investigation of Communist Crimes in Romania (IICCMER), I have conducted a study entitled Psychiatry and Political Repression in Communist Romania (1965-1989), whose aim was to analyse the key concepts of the psychiatric discourse of the period and to study the psychiatric practices performed in the Romanian psychiatric hospitals in order to repress political opposition.
