TITLE: Assistant Professor

AREAS OF PROFESSIONAL AND SCIENTIFIC INTEREST: computational statistics, models of statistical learning, ranking models


Hello everyone, I’m Milica, a statistician. Yes, the one who applies complicated formulas, makes graphs, ranks and explains some numbers. I believe that numbers have a story they want to tell and that statistics can help us hear and understand it. Therefore, I try to listen to the numbers and communicate them to others as much as possible. When not dealing with statistics, I like to spend time with friends, on long walks or in the cinema with a good movie.


I am an assistant professor at the Department of Operational Research and Statistics at the University of Belgrade – Faculty of Organisational Sciences. I am engaged in the teaching process for bachelor, master, and doctoral studies. In particular, I would like to single out my engagement in the dual master’s program that the Faculty implements with Middlesex University – the International Business and Management program, as well as the involvement in the multidisciplinary master’s program Social Sciences and Computing, which is offered at the University of Belgrade. So far, I have published over 60 scientific papers, 13 of which were published in indexed journals. I was awarded in the category of doctoral students’ research (Young Scholars for Better Statistics Award) at the Better Statistics for Better Lives conference organized by the OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) and the IAOS (International Association for Official Statistics). I received professional training at Radboud University, Netherlands, Justus-Liebig University, Germany, and Berlin School of Economics and Law, Germany. So far, I have been involved in several projects at the national level, as well as one international Project.


It is a great honour and pleasure to be part of the scientific project PANACEA, which gathered young, talented, enthusiastic, professional, and above all, smiling and cheerful researchers in one place. I fit into such a team easily and cannot wait for the continuation of joint activities on the realization of the Project. I hope that all of us will continue to work in the positive atmosphere that exists now at the beginning of the Project, not only on the realization of the PANACEA Project but also on mutual networking and personal and professional development.
