Exploring those fields, she works as a researcher, lecturer, writer, dramaturge, music critic, editor and curator focused on bringing together critical theory and contemporary art.

She is currently co-editing (with Joao Pedro Cachopo) a special issue for The Opera Quarterly dedicated to operas based on films and preparing a new monograph "Opera in the Expanded Field". Novak studied musicology, art theory, theory of media and cultural analysis in Serbia (University of Arts, Belgrade), Norway (Norges musikkhøgskole, Oslo) and in the Netherlands (ASCA, University of Amsterdam and Koninklijk Conservatorium Den Haag). Her work appears in international peer-reviewed journals and collective volumes such as The Opera Quarterly; Studies in Musical Theatre; Sound, Stage, Screen; Music and Letters; Music, Sound and the Moving Image; Dramaturgias; Teatron; TkH Journal; International Journal of Music New Sound; Journal Muzikologija; Contemporary Opera in Flux (2024); The Sound of Žižek (2023); Das Wohnzimmer als Loge (2016); Ashgate Research Companion to Minimalist and Postminimalist Music (2013) etc. She presented her work in Europe, Asia, North and South America and her texts are published in English, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, Croatian, Serbian, Dutch and Swedish and were commissioned by BBC, UNESCO and De Nationale Opera&Ballet (Amsterdam) among others. Her latest achievement as a dramaturge is Deca (Children), an opera in 17 songs by Irena Popovic. In 2019 Novak collaborated on the opera LIMBO by Michal Grover Friedlander in Tel Aviv and that same year she co-curated (with K. Dittel) the exhibition Post-Opera at TENT, Rotterdam.
