Driven by an unwavering commitment to advancing global progress, my diverse journey has been defined by roles that foster digital transformation and sustainable development. As a researcher at the United Nations University, I am immersed in the intricate realms of digital diplomacy, cybersecurity, and governance models. This involvement empowers me to spearhead collaborative digital governance initiatives across Europe, while my insights have been instrumental in shaping GovTech export strategies and elevating digital service delivery on an international scale.

My journey extends to the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), where my contributions as a Blue Peace Initiative consultant are aimed at assessing water basin financing readiness and architecting strategic frameworks for its sustainable management. Simultaneously, my role within the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has allowed me to leverage my analytical acumen as a national consultant. Here, I played a pivotal role in managing, dissecting, and utilizing data related to employment, social protection, and poverty, ultimately contributing to informed decision-making. My active engagement in advising on poverty reduction strategies and labor market activation serves as a testament to my resolute dedication to fostering equitable growth and positive change.

My commitment to evidence-based practices was exemplified during my tenure as the UNDP consultant for the Statistical Office of Montenegro, where I championed robust decision-making by pioneering data strategies for conducting the first register-based population census in Montenegro. Furthermore, my role as a Business Cluster Agent with UNIDO underscored my dedication to fostering innovation and resource mobilization.

As an avid scholar, my academic journey led me to acquire a PhD in economic diplomacy at the United Nations University for Peace, a step that further aligns my expertise with the global imperatives of our time.
