Assоciate Professor, PhD in Science and Technology

Research field: Nanochemistry, Nanotechnology

Professor of nanochemistry and PhD in the field of chemistry and technology. She is motivated to promote opportunities for the development of nanochemistry and nanotechnologies in the industry, based on raw materials from Bosnia and Herzegovina. She has a wide network of international associates and especially nurtures the cooperation with colleagues from the period of her study in Japan and Switzerland. She promotes international exchange but strongly motivates SP Chemistry students to repatriate and since it is very important that their knowledge gained abroad is most valuable if applied in their own country. In her work she combines knowledge from undergraduate studies (technology) and the period of postgraduate study (natural sciences and technology) and is doing her research exclusively on domestic raw materials and secondary raw materials from Bosnia and Herzegovina.
