Hello! This is Xinran Sun. You can also call me Sophie :) I am in St Antony’s College. I am from Shanghai, China. I graduated from UCL with a BSc in Politics and International Relations. My area of interest lies in Russia and Eastern Europe, with a particular focus on topics like conflict studies and foreign relations from a discursive perspective. Studying GAS gives me the opportunity to be fully immersed in diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, but also enables me to study comparatively how the concept of security has been established and perceived on the regional level. Outside classes, I am a big fan of musicals and theatre. It’s really nice to know everyone!
