I am a Senior Research Fellow at the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences, University of Southampton. I am working full-time on The Skyrmion Project, funded by the EPSRC Programme Grant.

I graduated with a BSc (Hons) degree in Electronic Engineering - Microelectronics from the University of Novi Sad (Serbia) in 2010, and obtained a MSc degree with Distinction in Nanoelectronics and Nanotechnology from the University of Southampton in 2011. I was a postgraduate research student at the Institute for Complex Systems Simulation Doctoral Training Centre, University of Southampton. I was awarded a PhD degree in 2016 with Skyrmionic states in confined helimagnetic nanostructures thesis. After obtaining PhD, I worked as a Research Fellow at the University of Southampton until September 2017, when I moved to the European X-Ray Free-Electron Laser Facility (XFEL) in Germany. At European XFEL I was employed as a Computational Scientist until August 2019, working on the OpenDreamKit Horizon 2020 European Research Infrastructure project. From October 2019, I am employed full-time as a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Southampton.

Until December 2019, I have (co-)authored 25 publications in various peer-reviewed journals. In addition, I have given 7 invited talks, delivered 5 tutorials, (co-)authored 59 contributions, and won 3 awards at national and international conferences. I have served as a reviewer for different Nature Publishing Group (NPG), American Physical Society (APS), American Institute of Physics (AIP), Institute of Physics (IOP), IEEE, and Wiley journals. Since March 2017, I have been an Editorial Board Member for Scientific Reports, a multidisciplinary open access journal published by Springer Nature. I have participated in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate courses (Computational Science and Data Science, Python Programming, Design and Computing) as well as in supervising individual student projects at the University of Southampton and the University of Hamburg. I am an IOP and IEEE member. More details on my research output can be found on one of the following public services:

My research interests include micromagnetics, development of finite element and finite difference micromagnetic simulation tools, magnetic skyrmions, Bloch points, helimagnetism, spintronics, magnetic nanodevices, computational science and engineering, simulation and modelling, complex systems, user interfaces, reproducibility, data analysis, and open science.

I speak Serbo-Croatian, English, and German.
