My research focuses on the relationship between propaganda and violence against civilians. I analyse the role propaganda played in justifying violence during the Yugoslav wars. On top of that, I currently serve as the Manager at the Centre for International Studies at LSE and work as a Graduate Teaching Assistance (GTA) on IR101 – Contemporary Issues in International Relations. In my previous years, I also worked as GTA for various other courses: International Security, Genocide, Power Shift, Global Politics in the 21st Century.
During my masters degree at the University of Oxford, I analysed the role that dehumanisation plays in justifying violence against civilians, and worked as a Waynflete Intern in Politics at Magdalen College School.
During my undergraduate degree at the University of Belgrade, I worked as a GTA for Introduction to Political Theory course, have been a member of the executive board of Open communication (a non-governmental organisation in Serbia), took part in debating and won several international competitions (including European Championship in the English as a Second Language Category).
