  • Profile

    As of 2020, I am a PhD candidate at UvA, working with professor Bastiaan Rutjens on science scepticism, namely using construal level theory to develop a psychological distance to science model in order to better understand science scepticism in various domains. 

    Before coming to UvA, I finished my bachelor and master studies of psychology at the University of Belgrade, Serbia, where I mostly investigated belief in conspiracies from different perspectives, such as thinking styles, social identity and information processing biases. I am broadly interested in belief systems, their antecedents as well as consequences.
