About me

I am a social psychology PhD Candidate and Research Assistant at the University of Belgrade Department of Psychology (LIRA).

My PhD project explores how people make vaccination decisions in social interactions with others and its implications for public communication, using online experiments and media content analysis. More broadly, I am interested in how people decide to help others and contribute to the public good.

Since 2022, I am part of the research team of the Reason4Health project. My main role is to lead and coordinate a content analysis study of online media coverage of alternative medicine in Serbia.

I co-founded and maintain LIRA’s open access repository of psychological instruments in Serbian (REPOPSI).

In my spare time, I like to draw, dabble in #SciComm, and teach myself R. I created this website with {distill} and {postcards}.
