I was born in Rijeka. After completing a Master's degree in the area of production engineering at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Rijeka, I continued with my scientific research at the same faculty and was awarded a Ph.D. in 2011 on the topic of the development biocompatible parts in biotechnology.
Current position: Faculty of Medicine, Assist. Professor and Juraj Dobrila University of Pula, Rector adviser for new technologies. From 2011-2015, I worked as a senior assistant at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Rijeka, where I focus on areas such as production engineering, biotechnology, reconstruction of the maxillofacial region, CAD/CAM etc. As of 2012, I have also been employed as a professional associate at the Faculty of Medicine of the same university, where I hold lectures on the application of new technology in dental medicine. In addition, I served as the head of the Laboratory for Plastic Deformation and Manufacturing Machines (2013 - 2016). 2013, I have fulfilled all the conditions for full professorship already at the age of 34 (among the youngest 10% of scientific advisors in the Republic of Croatia). My current professional work is focused on CAD/CAM 3D modelling and the development of endoscopic surgical instruments, while I regularly participate in seminars devoted to my areas of interest and hold lectures on biotechnology for both professional circles and the general public. Alongside my scientific pursuits, I also enjoy developing my artistic skills by playing several instruments and writing children's books.
