Research Assistant

Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Osijek

Involved in several projects including EU Tempus project "KISEK - Collaborative Internationalization of Software Engineering in Croatia" and two projects funded by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports of the Republic of Croatia, "Postupci raspoređivanja u samoodrživim raspodijeljenim računalnim sustavima" and "Distribuirano računalno upravljanje u transportu i industrijskim pogonima". Published and presented several articles on various international conferences, also published articles in significant scientific journals. Participated in teaching activities on several courses.





Computer architectures

While working at the University I had the opportunity to work on projects involving different technologies and computer architectures, including the following: DSP microcontrollers FPGA Grid computing


Over 7 years of experience teaching in higher education. In 2010. was among top 5 lecturers on the Faculty of Electrical Engineering by student ratings. Courses included: Real-time systems Computer architecture Programming Engineering graphics and documenting

C++ programming, Matlab

Extensive use of C++ and Matlab for creation of educational software and software for scientific research. Also used C++ for many private and hobby projects.


Created a webshop for a denim store. Was a web administrator for the Department of Automation and Process Computing on Faculty of Electrical Engineering website. Also worked on several more websites.
