I have been honoured and privileged to be working with, teaching and learning from a group of young scientists and students:
Dr Milica Popović Stijačić
I am an associate of the Laboratory for Experimental Psychology at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Novi Sad and an Assistant Professor for the courses Lower and Higher Cognitive Processes at the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Media and Communications, Singidunum University. I am interested in understanding how perceptual experience through which we obtain the knowledge of the world that surrounds us influences mental representations of concepts. Under the supervision of my mentor Dušica Filipović Đurđević, I demonstrated that multiple levels of perceptual experience are relevant for storage and processing. To be able to do so, I collected perceptual strength and psycholinguistics measures and visual lexical decision reaction times for 2100 Serbian nouns, which is, by far, the most extensive norming study of that kind in Serbian.

I am a PhD candidate at the University of Belgrade and a junior research assistant in the Laboratory for experimental psychology. My research focuses on the representation of lexical-semantic information, which I explore through ambiguous words. By describing ambiguous words through different theoretical approaches, such as Information theory, Distributional semantics, and Discriminative learning, I aim to learn more on how different interpretations of ambiguous words are learned, stored, and retrieved.

I am a master student of Psychology at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Belgrade, interested both in the processing of polysemous words, particularly adjectives, and in learning about embodied cognition theories. Besides my interest in cognitive psychology, which I pursue in the Laboratory for Experimental Psychology at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Belgrade, I am interested in science popularization, which I have been doing as a Student Assistant at Petnica Science Center and as a demonstrator at International Science Festival Belgrade.

I recently got my bachelor’s degree in Psychology at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Belgrade and am currently an associate at the Laboratory for Experimental Psychology. I am interested in the processing of ambiguous words, particularly polysemous nouns, their metaphorical senses, as well as orthography. I am also very interested in promoting interdisciplinarity and organising different scientific and social events for all students, which I have been doing as a member of the Psychology Students Association “Stimulus“. In addition to that, I’m working on helping students find information about studying abroad, as well as connecting a wide network of students around Europe with regards to studying and travelling abroad, as the Study Abroad Responsible in the European Federation of Psychology Students Associations (EFPSA).

I am a fourth-year Psychology student at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Belgrade and an associate of the Laboratory for Experimental Psychology. I am interested in research topics regarding processing, remembering and mental representation of polysemous words and executive functions. I am currently a Student Assistant at Petnica Science Center on Seminar for Combined Sciences and a member of The Student Section of the Serbian Neuroscience Society.

I am a third-year psychology student at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Belgrade, where I recently became an associate of the Laboratory for Experimental Psychology and the Laboratory for Research of Individual Differences. I’m also a junior assistant at Petnice Science Centre‘s psychology programme. Besides psycholinguistics, my interests include social cognition, group dynamics and gender roles. I’m particularly interested in the nature of thinking processes in relation to second language acquisition and the relationship between language and memory.
