Research Associate in the Laboratory for Plant Molecular Biology in the Institute of Molecular Genetics and Genetic Engineering, University of Belgrade. In 2013. obtained PhD in Molecular biology at the Faculty of Biology, University of Belgrade in the field of plants’ molecular biology, genetics and proteomics (characterization of buckwheat heteromorphic self-incompatibility). As a postdoc leading a research of maize response to abiotic stress (cold and drought) at transcriptomic, epitranscriptomic and metabolic level.
Specialization in bioinformatics („ChIP- and DNase-seq data analysis workshop” in 2014, CSC-IT science centre, Espoo, Finland and „Next Generation Sequencing data analysis” training school in 2015, Riga, Latvia), food safety and security (GMO analysis, National representative of the Republic of Serbia in the expert exchange program for Food safety and Security “Open World 2017” with USA) and education (Higher Education Didactics and Designing Higher Education Curricula, TRAIN programme 2016, University of Belgrade and King Baudouin Foundation).
Teaching activities: Methodology in Molecular Biology (PhD studies in Molecular biology), Developing Academic Skills Course (BSc students of Life Sciences) and implementation of awarded research projects (BSc students of Life sciences).
Involved in the science promotion events (Researcher’s Night, Plant Fascination Day, etc.) and the coordinator of H2020-MSCA-NIGHT-2014-633376 (SCIMFONICOM 2014-15) project in 2014 and 2015.
