My name is Moreno Mitrović & I’m a linguist.
Most of my work revolves around my fascination and frustration with (problems of) language.
I currently work as a linguist with Google (via Adecco) in London and am associated researcher at ZAS in Berlin. Beyond, or parallel to, my life in academia and research, I am also the founding director of Bled Institute.
