Background and activities

I am a researcher with the Department for Interdisciplinary Studies of Culture where I explore social inclusion and gender equality issues related to energy transitions and higher education reform. My main research areas thus follow two distinct but interlinked fields of interest. First, I study gender balance among university professors, with special focus on NTNU. The main interest is to explore how imbalances are produced in so-called epistemic living spaces where gender is formatted through the mediation of policies, strategies and practices. The second line of inquiry are energy transitions, with a specific focus on decarbonization of transport. I am especially interested in the messy pathways and everyday politics of transitions efforts. In both focus areas, my interest is in understanding how inequalities are coproduced at the intersection between the mundane everyday life, materiality and institutional arrangements. 


I have a PhD in Science and Technology Studies. In my PhD Thesis, I explored the politics of urban transport technologies in the context of the city of Belgrade, Serbia. My background is in sociology and anthropology. I have completed a Research Master in Social Sciences and a Bachelor in Anthropology from the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Prior to starting my PhD, I worked as a researcher and project coordinator in a Belgrade based think tank that worked on issues of social inclusion, human security and gender equality in South West Europe.
