I come from Serbia, where I completed my Bachelor (2015) and Master studies (2017) at the School of Electrical Engineering in the department of Power Engineering.  My Master thesis was ‘Pumped hydro storage balancing for wind uncertainties’, which inspired me to continue with research and apply for the InnoDC programme.

During my studies, I was accepted as an intern at Balslev Consulting Engineers in Copenhagen, Denmark.  More recently, I worked in Doha, Qatar as an Electrical Engineer on Power Lines and Transformer Stations.  It has been an enriching experience to work on different projects within international teams.

I am now working as Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher (ESR) at Universitat Politècnica De Catalunya.

The HVDC system is considered to be an innovative solution for the future; I am highly interested and motivated to learn and to become an expert in this field.  The chance to cooperate with academia and industry inspires me all the more to reach my project objectives and to deliver the best results.

In my spare time, I like playing volleyball, travelling and reading.
