YPN Biography: 

Nicholas Trickett received his B.A. in comparative literature from Haverford College, focusing on 19th century Russian and American literature. He received his M.A. in Russian and Eurasian studies at the European University in St. Petersburg, specializing in post-Soviet foreign policy, energy security, and political economy in the post-Soviet space. Before beginning graduate school, he interned for the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship working on the committee's press operation and researching issues such as small business access to credit. As part of the Rising Experts Program, Nicholas is exploring the evolving impact China-driven infrastructure and trade initiatives, such as the Belt and Road Initiative, have on Russia's foreign policy interests and political economy in post-Soviet states. In particular, he is examining the patterns of cooperation between Russia and China that either mask competition or may lead to future conflict as well as the growing links between Chinese interests across Eurasia and Russia's interests in Europe.
