Zlatko is a development economist. His recently completed PhD contains papers revolving around the economic crises-poverty/inequality-institutions nexus. His publication record covers papers published in the Journal of Development Studies, Journal of International Development and Review of Economics and Institutions. Growing up in Macedonia during the economic transition years, Zlatko also developed keen interest in the impact of the process of transition in CEE/FSU on human development. In that respect, he co-authored a paper that sheds light on the impact of privatization on mortality rates in the transition region (Lancet, 2010), as well as the EBRD's Life in Transition Report (2011).

His most recent work includes EU's funded project on assessing the cost of government in Bosnia and Herzegovina and EBRD's funded report on diversification of the heavily-oil-based Russian economy. His professional background includes years spent as a staff member of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund in Washington DC, as well as consulting positions with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (Office of the Chief Economist) in London.
