I am a political scientist and policy specialist of southeast European and international affairs with a PhD from York University in Toronto.
My career background is a blend of global academic and policy engagement. I have worked as a scholar, policy analyst, consultant, researcher, and writer in both North America and Europe. I am also the author of two books, "Hunger and Fury: The Crisis of Democracy in the Balkans" (Hurst Publishers and Oxford University Press, 2018) and "The Bosniaks: Nationhood after Genocide" (Hurst Publishers & Oxford University Press, 2023).
Presently, I am a Senior Non-Resident Fellow at the Newlines Institute. I am also a Advisory Council member of the Nationhood Lab at Salve Regina University's Pell Center for International Relations and an Advisory Board member of the Kulin Initiative.
