I am a scholar of International Relations, with research focus in International Security. In my research, I am interested in management of (in)security during crises and beyond borders. While my current project focuses on how the EU projects its power globally, in my previous research I have looked at how states on the European periphery cope with critical situations. I have fieldwork experience in Serbia, Kosovo, Egypt, Brussels, Somalia and Israel/Palestine.
Currently I'm an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Political Sciences, University of Belgrade. From October 2015 to October 207 I was a Marie Curie Fellow at the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies (SPAIS), University of Bristol where I was working on a project titled Local Ownership in Security Sector Reform Activities Within CSDP Interventions of the EU.
My training is in International Relations at the Belgrade University (PhD, BA), Sciences Po Paris (MA) and London School of Economics and Political Science (MSc).
In addition to these academic interests I have been closely involved with security policy community as a board member of the Belgrade Centre for Security Policy, academic coordinator at the Belgrade Security Forum and the co-chair of the Regional Stability in South East Europe Study Group at the PfP Consortium of Defence Academies and Security Studies Institutes.
