My name is Sean Cailteux and I am from St. Louis, Missouri. I graduated from the University of South Carolina in December 2021 with a BA in Economics and Russian. At Georgetown, I am a joint degree student as I am also pursuing a MA of Eurasian, Russian, and East European Studies. I have traveled to Russia on four occasions and have done research into a variety of social and political issues in Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus. I speak Russian, I am currently studying Ukrainian, and I have a knowledge of basic German. I am interested in international law, diplomacy, and conflict between states in Eastern Europe in the post-soviet period.
