Between 2003 and 2009 Velina was a volunteer assistant at the Heidelberg Institute for International Conflict Research with focus on the conflict of Chechnya until 2009.

Her fields of research cover the Black sea area with regard to geopolitical and security-related issues in this region and with special focus on the role of the regional key players Russia and Turkey. Her other main research topic refers to the approach of the EU towards Eastern Europe and the Western Balkans. A particular field of interest is also the nuclear confrontation between India and Pakistan in South Asia. Her theoretical research lies especially within the field of geopolitics, game theory, and confidence building.
