I am a theoretical physicist, working as a research associate (assistant 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 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.

Currently I am the Principal Investigator of the Croatian Research Foundation project
New Geometries for Gravity and Spacetime.
