In her project with the title “Environment and Securitization: Middle Classes vs. Slum Inhabitants in Participatory Forms of Urban Governance in Belgrade” she investigates civic vigilantism as a lens on how communal order and air pollution become sites for the articulation of middle classness in a city that is increasingly restructured to serve the interests of international capital. Before she has finished her doctoral dissertation with the title “Civilizing Waste: Work, Non-Work, and Urban Citizenship in the Making of Belgrade (1965-2018)” at the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology of the Central European University. Her research interests are in the area of historical sociology, (post-) socialist urbanization, and policing.
