I am a Lecturer in Public Management and Administration at the University of York (School of Business and Society). My areas of expertise include public administration, public policy, and regulatory governance, with a focus on integrity governance and bureaucratic accountability. My research spans both OECD and non-OECD contexts.
I am the Director of the University of York’s online Masters in Public Administration, where I teach courses in strategic planning, regulatory governance, leading and managing organisational change, and ethical social leadership.
I earned a PhD in Political Science from the London School of Economics (LSE) (Department of Government), where I also I obtained an MSc in Public Policy and Administration as well as an MRes in Research Methods in Political Science. My bachelor’s degree is in political science, from the University of Belgrade (Serbia). Before coming to the University of York, I spent two years as a postdoctoral Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellow at the University College Dublin (UCD, Sutherland School of Law), following a year of teaching master’s and undergraduate courses in public policy and public management at the University College London (UCL) and teaching, as a doctoral candidate, undergraduate, summer-school and executive courses at the LSE, in public policy and political economy.
I am the Chair of the ECPR Standing Group on Regulatory Governance’s Early Career Network (ECN), whose mission is to help early career researchers in regulatory governance make a successful transition from studies or temporary research and teaching roles to permanent academic positions or alternative professional careers.
