Biography

I am an interdisciplinary urbanist, currently holding a Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellowship and a Lord Kelvin / Adam Smith Leadership Fellowship.  My research examines functional potentials and cultural meanings of urban-ised landscapes, examining different but related concerns around public space, informality, urban morphology, and urban ecology.  My Leverhulme supported research investigates the co-production of urban landscapes and women’s equality in the public realm.   

 

Originally from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, I received a BFA in Photography from the San Francisco Art Institute and a Master of Landscape Architecture degree from the University of California at Berkeley.  Following a period of practice as a landscape architect and urban designer in the USA and Australia, I obtained a PhD from The University of Melbourne. My dissertation examined the capacity for informal reappropriation in residential back-alleys (laneways) to transform undervalued sites into meaningful spaces.    

 

I have taught landscape architecture and urban design at The University of Melbourne, and human geography at the University of Glasgow, as well as supervised various student research projects.

Research interests

  • Cultural meanings and functional potentials of urban landscapes
  • Spatial practices in urban interstices
  • Informality and co-production
  • Feminist urbanism
  • Urban ethnography
