Nicole Lindstrom researches and teaches in the areas of international relations and comparative political economy in the Department of Politics at the University of York. Since obtaining her Ph.D. from the Maxwell School of Syracuse University in 2002, she was a member of the Departments of International Relations and European Studies and Political Science at Central European University in Budapest.  She held a visiting position at the Graduate Program of International Affairs at The New School and is currently a visiting fellow at the Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation at the University of Warwick. Her research interests lie in the dynamic interactions between transnational actors and domestic change in Central and East Europe and the Balkans. She is currently completing a book manuscript New Europe, Old Conflicts: The Political Economy of the Enlarged European Union, which examines the impact of European integration on post-socialist transitions and how, in turn, new member states are transforming the enlarged European Union. She was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota and received her undergraduate degree from Macalester College in Saint Paul. She now lives in Warwickshire while on research leave from York.
