I am a LL.D. candidate in Intellectually Property Law at Stockholm University. I am a qualified lawyer in Croatia and provide consulting services in the field of EU law and IP law for Brussels based consultancies. In the first half of 2019 I was based at Queen Mary, University of London as a visiting scholar, and in the second half of 2019 I was  based at the Court of Justice of the European Union in Luxembourg, as a stagiaire vistour.


My doctoral project concerns online protection of copyright in the EU. As a research student I am affiliated with the Institutet för Immaterialrätt och Marknadsrätt (IFIM) and Institutet för Europeisk rätt at Stockholm University.


Recently I have finalised projects for the EU concerning mapping of IP rights in Sweden, mapping regulative framework for sharing economy in the tourist sector in the EU, implementation of the Tobacco Products Directive (focus on Croatia), implementation of the Damages Directive in Competition Law (focus on Croatia).

I am currently working on projects for the EU concerning GDPR implementation in Croatia and implementation of Services Directive (focus on Croatia).


I mostly provide teaching in EU Law, copyright and trademarks. I also managed summer courses in EU Law and Copyright in the Digital Market.
