A native Arizonan and 1992 graduate of the University of Arizona, Kiril Tomoff is thrilled to return to the West after graduate study at the University of Chicago, where he received an M.A. in General Studies in the Humanities in 1995 and a Ph.D. in Russian and Soviet History in 2001. He received a Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Abroad Fellowship in 1998-99, and he has presented papers at conferences in the United States, Norway, and Hungary. An active and serious amateur horn player, Tomoff has tried to combine his interests in music and Russian
history. He is also beginning research on the construction of a Soviet cultural sphere after World War II. Besides modern Russian history, his teaching interests include 20th-century Europe and the 20th-century world.
