People generally call me Vlad (English) or Vlada (Serbian, Croatian).
What I Do
After spending over twenty years teaching and doing research at the University of Bedfordshire (UK) I now teach at the University of Madeira (Portugal). I have also been involved with the work of Urban Access, a charity which provides counselling for young people in Hertfordshire.
My main research interest is in human communication and I work within the framework of Relevance Theory.
Eastbourne (home), Funchal (Madeira, Portugal) (work), Belgrade (I still think of it as home, although I have not lived there since 1985).
