She is also interested in the relationship of photography and of the natural and built environment to individual and collective memory and memorialization in Bosnia-Herzegovina, where she has conducted fieldwork through two Harriman Institute travel grants and as a Meier Fellow at the Harriman Institute during 2017-2018. She previously worked as a journalist, editor and media trainer in Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Egypt and has taught journalism at media studies at NYU.
