Research Interests
Coming from Serbia, my interests focus mainly around societal outliers—Roma children and families, LGBTIQ adolescents, and gifted underachieving pupils. I am currently working on a project investigating the interplay of individuals' personal values and values they are exposed to while interacting with their immediate social groups, and its effects on subjective well-being.

Dissertation topic
Negotiating Personal Values in a Complex Social World: Well-being Implications for Emerging Adults

Dissertation abstract
While exploring, emerging adults are engaging with many different social contexts in which they simultaneously try to establish, question, and reestablish their identity and values as the core aspect of it. Every social context privileges expressing certain values and reconciling the sometimes different values of the various environments we inhabit is demanding.
