  • Biography and research interests

    I am a PhD researcher investigating the stereotypes of scientists, under the supervision of Dr. Bastiaan Rutjens and Prof. Gerben van Kleef. Prior to my PhD, I completed a Research Master's in Psychology (major in social psychology) at the University of Amsterdam (2020) and undergraduate studies in Research Psychology at the University of Belgrade (2018).

    Though within the area of Social Psychology, my research interests are very wide which also mirrors my scientific work. However, there are two streams of research I am currently investigating:
    1) Belief Systems and irrational beliefs. One stream revolves around unusual ideas such as belief in conspiracy theories, receptivity to pseudo-profound bullshit, and anti-science beliefs. Who are the individuals that endorse these ideas? What is the structure of these beliefs? Can they be altered? 
    2) Political psychology and ideology. The second line represents an overlap between politics and social psychology: I am interested in decolonial psychology, intergroup relations, stereotypes, and how political ideology relates to these. This line emerged naturally since I am an avid reader of political philosophy, with a particular interest in (Neo)Marxism and Third-Worldism.

    Open science:
    I am a big supporter of Open science: I regularly pre-register my studies, share my materials, data & code, and always encourage good research practices in my reviewing work. I believe that encouraging such practices would save many resources (not only time but public money as well), and get us to a more truthful (epistemologically speaking) understanding of human beings.

  • Possible collaboration

    I am always open to collaboration, so feel free to contact me if you would like to collaborate (regardless of your status, from bachelor students to professors) on an interesting project. I am open to any interesting ideas in political psychology and ideology, social perception, or any other topics in core social psychology.
