Senior Adviser and Online Course Coordinator


Anti-corruption issues have been part of my work since 2001, when I joined the Anti-Corruption Division of the OECD. Prior to that, I spent almost four years in post-war Bosnia and Herzegovina working on refugee and humanitarian affairs.

I've assisted U4 in various research projects and running online courses since 2005. In addition, I do consulting work for international organisations such as the Council of Europe, the European Commission, and bilateral donors. Typical assignments involve advice and programme design and evaluations of technical assistance interventions in the area of anti-corruption, rule of law, and good governance. My expertise covers the Western Balkans and the former Soviet Union.
