I am currently engaged as a researcher at the Leibniz-Institute for Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB) in Berlin, at the Department for Biology and Ecology of Fishes, funded through the Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship (Georg Forster Fellowship Programme).

At the IGB, I am working together with Dr Jörn Gessner on research related to sturgeon conservation and management planning, conducted by the use of various modelling approaches.

I am also research associate professor at the Institute for Multidisciplinary Research at the University of Belgrade, at the Department of Environmental Sciences.

I completed my PhD at the University of Belgrade, and my MSc at the Swedish Biodiversity Centre (CBM) in Uppsala (part of the SLU and Uppsala University). Both were dealing with different issues related to sturgeon conservation and management in the Danube River.

My research interests span different topics, but mainly the field of species extinctions and extinction risk assessments, biological invasions, fish ecology and fisheries management, and the development of novel model-based risk assessment approaches.
