I earned a doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in Information Technologies (2008), a master’s degree (M.Sc.) in Electronic Business (2005), and B.Sc. in Informatics (1998) from the University of Belgrade in Serbia. My M.Sc. thesis, “Web Pedagogical Agents: A Touch of Web Intelligence”, was awarded with the 2005 Research Award from the Serbian Society for Informatics. In addition to research, I have 8 years of software development experience in banking industry, where, at first, I was an application developer (1998 – 2004), then a project manager (2004 – 2006).
In November 2006, I joined Salzburg Research and become researcher in the Knowledge and Media Technologies (KMT) group that is transformed in the Internet of Things (IoT) group in 2013. From 2015, I’m acting as an Expert Evaluator and Rapporteur for EU H2020 research programmes, helping European Commission in the assessment of scientific projects for funding applications.
My research interests include cybersecurity for the IoT, strategic and behavioral Game Theory algorithms, Semantic Web technologies and ontology engineering.
I worked on several EU projects such as: FP7 EAGLE, FP7 IP IKS, FP7 INFRA AgINFRA, FP6 IP ImportNET, FP6 NoE ProLearn, and many national Austrian projects, e.g. FFG UNDERSTANDER, FFG IoT4Industry, etc. In addition, I acted as an external lecturer at the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences (Fachhochschule Salzburg) teaching “Artificial Intelligence and Algorithmic Game Theory” (October/ November 2011), and “Game Theory for the Smart Grid” (July 2013). At present, I’m contributing to the H2020 FoF (Factories of the Future) project called NIMBLE (Collaboration Network for Industry, Manufacturing, Business and Logistics in Europe): https://www.nimble-project.org/
