I received my PhD in Political Science (Public Policy Track) from the Central European University (CEU). I hold MA in Public Policy with specialization in International Public Policy and Decentralized Governance from the Central European University, Department of Public Policy, as well as an MA and BA in Political Science, both from the University of Zagreb.
Before completing the PhD, I worked in Transparency International Croatia on projects related to financing of political parties and electoral campaigns, conflict of interests and freedom of information. Following this background, my research interest focuses on political financing and money in politics, regulations and compliance, and anti-corruption policies. My PhD dissertation explored the impact of political financing regulations on party corruption in Croatia and Serbia.
Currently I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the CEU Center for Teaching and Learning, where I teach PhD courses related to foundations in higher education teaching, experiential learning and discussion based teaching. My teaching research interest focuses on design for learning, and teaching with case studies and simulations, especially in teaching social sciences.
