About me

Hi, I am Dušan Nikolić, from Aleksinac, Serbia. I completed a BA and MA in English Language and Literature at the University of Niš. I have an MA degree in Language and Literature from the University of Belgrade, Faculty of Philology. Currently, I am doing a PhD in Linguistics at the University of Calgary under the supervision of Dr. Stephen Winters.  I am a vice-president of the graduate student association, “A Higher Clause”, and a member of the Phonetics Lab.

As for my non-academic activities, I am the host of the spoken word program – Linguistically Aware – which is broadcast once monthly at a local radio station, CJSW 90.9 FM. I am passionate about web-developing, which is why I developed the website for our graduate students’ association. I am also a member of the Canadian Association of Slavists and the Canadian Linguistics Association
