As a project manager, my main activities are focused in suport in pre-award process and include the search for public funding opportunities, the advice and support of researchers throughout a proposal preparation on national and international funding programs, the positioning of the NIB interests in the European research area and the promotion of the NIB at an international level.

I graduated with a degree in banking and finance and a master's degree in business sciences at the Faculty of Economics in Ljubljana (UNI-LJ, Slovenia). From 2024, I am the Senior Project Specialist at NIB. At NIB, I work on the 5xPRO project, which aims to strengthen the competencies of project officers and enhance the excellence, interdisciplinarity and international integration of the Slovenian research community.

I like to organize and work in a group of people covering different areas of work. I am creative and like to refine any work currently being carried out. The most interesting challenge for me is to address how with limited available resources find a path to the target. I am in favor of sustainable living, where concern for the environment and respectful, dignified treatment of all living beings, healthy diet, maintaining the natural environment and sustainable farming is essential for the continuation of humanity.
