Welcome! I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania (Institute for the Study of Citizens and Politics). In the Fall of 2024, I will be joining Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy as an Assistant Professor of Computational Social Science.

My research examines the interplay between digital technologies and intergroup relations within deeply divided societies globally. My work has been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Research & Politics, and Political Science Research & Methods. I was formerly a recipient of the United States Institute of Peace-Minerva fellowship, the 2022 Meta PhD Research fellowship, and the National Science Foundation Dissertation Improvement fellowship.

I hold a Ph.D. in Political Science from New York University and a B.A. (Summa Cum Laude; Phi Beta Kappa) in World Politics with minors in Mathematics and Hispanic Studies from Hamilton College. Apart from my research, I enjoy competitive ballroom dancing and summers in my home country of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
