PhD Research Fellow

 
Office:
HU039 ( Universitetsveien 25, Kristiansand )

I obtained my BA in political science - international relations from the University of Belgrade, Serbia. I continued my studies in Austria, Finland and China (Danube University, Krems, University of Tampere, Finland and Beijing Normal University, China) under the Erasmus+ Master in Research and Innovation in Higher Education (MARIHE). In October 2018, I began a PhD program at the University of Agder, Norway, focusing primarily on the governance of higher education and changes in the academic profession.
