I am a Ph.D. student and a Research Associate at the Philipps-Universität Marburg under the mentorship of Prof. Dr. Dominik Heider and Dr. habil. Georges Hattab. Currently, I am conducting research in the area of bioinformatics pipelines and tools using machine learning and various other data science methods. Besides that, I am also working on the problems of designing, implementing, evaluating, and visualizing automatic workflows for information storage systems based on molecular storage media, e.g., DNA. More about the project I am working on can be found on the official project website.

Previously, I was the Technical Lead at eMedicals Healthtech GmbH on kidi platform project. There, I guided the development of all parts of the product in order to fight nutrition-sensitive diseases by applying food as medicine. Our first product was kidiONE – a publicly available nutrition app that helps people with nutrition-sensitive diseases track and regulate their dietary habits. Our second product was kidiPRO – a prescription-only medical app that helps patients avoid malnutrition, increases drug adherence, supports blood pressure management, and enables the monitoring of the disease by the patient and by the physician. kidiPRO and kidiDOC products were being developed as prescription medical applications (Software as a Medical Device) according to all relevant regulatory standards (BfArM, FDA, ISO, and IEC).

Furthermore, I graduated from the Faculty of Mathematics, University of Belgrade, with a Master’s degree in Mathematics, module Computer Science and Informatics. I finished my Master’s degree studies with an average grade of 10.00 (out of 10.00) and with my Master’s Thesis ‘Determining protein N-glycosylation with machine learning methods’.
