About Myself

I found my way to Oregon State University by looking for a program that will teach me the tools and skills I need to change the world. Fortunately, I met many like-minded students and faculty in the School of Public Policy.

Originally from Macedonia, I earned my undergraduate degree in Ecology at the University of Ss. Cyril and Methodius in Skopje. I came to the US in 2012 on a Fulbright scholarship to pursue a Master’s degree in Watershed Sciences at Utah State University. After completing my Master’s degree, I decided that I would like to use the knowledge I have in aquatic ecology and watershed science to influence policy. I am currently studying knowledge-to-action networks via the Climate Impacts Research Consortium and its work in the Pacific Northwest.
