Hello There!

My life is intertwined with two passions. One is tennis and the other is science. I am lucky enough to have an opportunity to be successful in both.
Nevertheless, I have a feeling that my career as a researcher has only just began. I look forward to goals I want to achieve and things I want to discover.

Currently I work as a postdoctoral associate at Department of Intelligent Systems (DIS) at Jozef Stefan Institute. My research is focused on the field of sport science, more precisely on extracting applicable knowledge from large amounts of data.

Welcome to my page, welcome to my life.

    Computer support for the reassembly of wall-painting fragments

    In collaboration with the Restoration Centre in Ljubljana we (DIS) developed a mobile and web application e-Pedius for the computer based support for the reassembly of wall-painting fragments. The solution supports crowd-sourcing and is accessible to wider

    The GP-DEMO algorithm

    For my PhD. thesis I developed a new algorithm called GP-DEMO. The algorithm proved to be very efficient in solving computationally complex multi-objective optimization problems. It is based on evolutionary algorithms and uses Gaussian process modelling within
