Mila Temnyalova is a PhD Candidate studying the effect of crisis framing on European integration. She uses qualitative methods to understand how institutional elites systematically construe and mobilize crisis frames along competing axes, and under what conditions one crisis narrative gains legitimacy over alternatives. Her side projects focus on market integration and nationalism. She's used panel methods to study consumer price convergence of 200+ goods and services in the EU. Additionally, she's conducted in-person interviews, focus groups, and archival work to study how collective identity and regime change shape war remembrance.
