Dr Richard Mole

Senior Lecturer in Political Sociology, University College London (UCL)


I studied German and Russian at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, and International Relations at the University of Cambridge, where I also worked at the University's Baltic States Research Unit. After four years working for Credit Suisse in London and Zurich, I began my doctoral studies in 1997 at the London School of Economics and Political Science. My PhD thesis examined the relationship between identity and foreign policy in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. After completing my PhD, I was a Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania's Solomon Asch Center for the Study of Ethnopolitical Conflict, before taking up a two-year Andrew W. Mellon Research Fellowship at UCL.   I joined SSEES in 2004 as Lecturer in the Politics of Central Europe and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in Political Sociology in 2010.
