I am a mathematical and theoretical physicist, working as a senior research associate (associate professor) at the Ruđer Bošković Institute in Zagreb, Croatia. I am also teaching at the doctoral studies programme of the Faculty of Science of the University of Zagreb and serve as a member of the Evaluation Panel for Physics of the Croatian Science Foundation.

I received my PhD from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece in 2010, supported by a fellowship from the National Centre for Scientific Research "Demokritos". Later, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the universities of Bonn, Hannover and Groningen.

My research interests concentrate on Theoretical High Energy Physics and Mathematical Physics, more particularly gauge field theories, classical and quantum gravity, string theory, dualities and generalizations of geometry. I am also interested in various problems in particle physics, cosmology and, more recently, condensed matter physics. More details here.

Until recently I was the Principal Investigator of the Croatian Research Foundation project
New Geometries for Gravity and Spacetime.
