I am engaged as a researcher at the Biology Centre of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Institute of Hydrobiology (HBU) in Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic, funded through the J. E. Purkyne Fellowship of the Czech Academy of Sciences. Previously, I was working as a researcher at the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB) in Berlin, as well as 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 fish ecology and fisheries management, species extinctions and extinction risk assessments, biological invasions, and the development of novel model-based risk assessment approaches.
