Biography

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Media and Communication at the University of Oslo, Norway, where I have the pleasure to collaborate closely with Dr. Elisabeth Staksrud and Dr. Sonia Livingstone. I am also a member of the EU Kids Online research network (more than 33 European countries and 150 researchers studying youth and digital media).  My major project right now is writing a book on social media companies’ cyberbullying policies for 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. 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.
