I received my PhD degree in July 2017 on the Department of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Zagreb with the topic Constructions of gender identity among female residents in homes for adults with mental illness. In 2014 I completed two years of education in Art Expressive Psychotherapy and since 2015 I am in Gestalt psychotherapy education.

I have been researching particularly anthropological analysis of activities and appointments homes for mentally ill adults, phenomenon of fear in the psychiatric history and the work of the Neuropsychiatric Hospital Dr. Ivan Barbot Popovača during NDH.
