I am a political scientist specialising on theĀ Western Balkans region and its European Integration perspective, as well as communication sciences and marketing.

Academically, I am a senior research fellow at Zurich University of Applied Sciences and a former postdoctoral Junior Research Fellow at South East European Studies at Oxford (SEESOX), which is part of the European Studies Centre of St Antony’s College at the University of Oxford. I obtained my PhD in political science from the University of Zurich, Switzerland, and was previously a Swiss Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars in Washington, D.C.



My research focuses on political communication and marketing, but also the role of the media in general as well as democratisation of divided post-war societies with a particular emphasis on political and constitutional orders in the Western Balkans.
