I am a PhD Student at the Department for Informatics and Computer Science, Faculty of Mathematics, University of Belgrade, Serbia. I am currently working as a junior lecturer at the Department of Library and Information Science, Faculty of Philology. My field of interest is Natural Language Processing, and the title of my thesis is Impact of Text Classification on Natural Language Processing. My thesis focuses on four different problems of Text Classification that are solved successfully using the same vector space of linguistic and stylometric features. All my research is dedicated to developing tools, resources and models for Serbian language. I am a member of a JeRTeh Society for Language Resources and Technologies.

I am a Python coder and a Linux user from the very beginning. Apart from working and studying, I am learning Spanish and taking dancing classes. In my leisure time, I love spending time with my pets (a dog named Petar and a cat named Ferenc). I have never learned to play an instrument, and this is something I would like to change in the future.
