I am a researcher at the Department of Media and Communication at the University of Oslo, Norway, and a member of the EU Kids Online research network (more than 33 European countries and 150 researchers studying youth and digital media).  I’ve just published my first monograph, “Protecting Children Online? Cyberbullying Policies of Social Media Companies” with the MIT Press Information Society Series,  where I analyze cyberbullying initiatives and enforcement mechanisms of companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Ask.fm and Snapchat, among others. I ask what privatized policy means for children’s rights and civil liberties and what it takes to create a culture of dignity. The book is available open access—here.  I completed my doctoral dissertation in communication at American University in Washington D.C. and worked under invaluable guidance of Dr. Kathryn MontgomeryDr. Patricia Aufderheide and Dr. Laura DeNardis. I have also done research on chilling effects of copyright in visual arts community, available here, which is also a paper in New Media & Society journal; media coverage of US involvement in the Middle East; US public diplomacy; and media coverage of climate change, which you can read here. You can find a list of my publications here. I hold an MA in Media and Public Affairs from The George Washington University (GWU) where I worked under guidance of Dr. Steven Livingston. I have a passion for journalism- writing and documentary filmmaking. I graduated from GWU’s Documentary Filmmaking Institute. I worked at BBC Serbian Service, Radio Free Europe and Columbia Missourian. I occasionally blog on the Huffington Post. For further information, take a look at my CV here.
