INSTITUTION: University of Belgrade – Faculty of Transport and Traffic Engineering
TITLE: Assistant Professor
AREAS OF PROFESSIONAL AND SCIENTIFIC INTEREST: sustainable urban mobility, analytical tools for transportation market analysis, quality management tools in traffic and transportation
I am a creative, aesthete and adventurer and someone who, in addition to science, is in love with cooking, dancing, and botany. Besides that, I actively follow women’s football, and since September 2020, I have been a member of the steering committee of WFC Crvena Zvezda. I strive to give my best and learn something new in everything I do. I am motivated by new challenges and teamwork, especially when everyone in the team is inspired and motivated by a clear goal and vision, as in the case of the PANACEA project.
I graduated from the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Engineering in Belgrade in 2010, and in 2012 I got my MSc degree. In 2019, I defended a doctoral dissertation entitled “Models for supporting the development of mobility in line with the Sharing Economy concept”. Since 2011, I have worked at the Department of Organization, Management and Economics of Transport and Traffic at the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Engineering in Belgrade. In June 2019, I was promoted to assistant professor in the scientific field “Economics and Marketing in Traffic and Transport”. I teach students at all three study levels at the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Engineering. I am the author and co-author of over forty published papers and a participant in several international and national workshops on transport and traffic. As a PhD student, I was awarded for my “Carpooling as a measure for achieving sustainable urban mobility in Belgrade” paper at a competition funded by the European Commission. In my previous work, I participated in the realization of two scientific and professional projects. I was a mentor or a member of the commissions of numerous master theses at the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Engineering.
PANACEA AND ME:
Since my doctorate is about models and services of the Sharing Economy in transportation, I see the PANACEA project as a chance for further development and research on the Sharing Economy. I was extremely pleased and encouraged by the opportunity and support given by the Science Fund of the Republic of Serbia, which will enable the establishment of the Serbian Sharing Economy Competence Centre (SeSECC) with the idea of bringing this concept closer to the broader community. Given that the other members of the PANACEA team share the same enthusiasm as me, I have no doubts about the success of our plans.
