I am a 3rd year PhD candidate. I earned my first MA degree in Philosophy and English Language and Literature (thesis: "Direct Democracy: a defense", supervised by Elvio Baccarini) at the University of Rijeka, and my second in Nationalism Studies (thesis: "Liberal Multiculturalism and the Principle of Partiality", supervised by Szabolcs Pogonyi and Will Kymlicka) at Central European University. My dissertation work, titled "Nudging Democratically", concentrates on two questions: 1.) Is epistemic deliberative democracy an unattainable ideal considering the prevalence of cognitive heuristics? and 2.) Is it permissible for deliberative democratic bodies to engage in behaviorally enhanced policies, and on which terms? My other interests are in distributive justice and democratic theory more broadly, as well as philosophy of medicine, bioethics, and philosophical obscurantism.
