Marthe Handå Myhre is a postdoctoral fellow at the Norwegian Institute for Urban and Regional Research, Oslo Metropolitan University. She holds a Ph.D. in Russia Studies from the University of Oslo (2018).

From 2018 to 2021 Marthe was part of the research project Accommodation of Regional Diversity in Ukraine (ARDU). Currently Marthe is involved in an international research project studying Russia’s appeal to populists and pragmatists in Europe (https://uni.oslomet.no/proruss/).
