Grigory Ioffe

My teaching and research specialty is broadly defined human geography. Within this discipline, I have done research in the areas of population geography, geography of agriculture, geopolitics, and national identity.


My research has focused on East European settings and on processes with pronounced spatial dimension typical for post-Communist countries.  

I have authored and coauthored several academic books, including:

and some others as well as a couple dozen peer-reviewed articles.
