We summarize our recent results of studying five-dimensional Kasner cosmologies in a time-dependent Calabi-Yau compactification of M-theory undergoing a topological flop transition. The dynamics of the additional states, which become massless at the transition point and give rise to a scalar potential, helps to stabilize the moduli and triggers short periods of accelerated cosmological expansion.
