Your Title

I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the HCI Centre, School of Computer Science, University of Birmingham, UK, where I'm working with Dr. Mirco Musolesi on mobile social sensing.

I obtained my PhD from the Computer Science Department,University of California Santa Barbara in August 2012. Before that I got a BS degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Belgrade, School of Electrical Engineering.

In the last few years I have also spent some time at Meraka Institute, South Africa, The University of Cambridge, UK, The University of Edinburgh, UK and University College Cork, Ireland.
