I am a physical oceanographer with more than 20y of experience in the observations and modelling space. Started my ocean journey after finishing my BSc Physics (field Geophysics, 1997), after followed with MSc degree in Oceanology (2001) and later PhD in Physics (field of Physical Oceanography, 2007). During the 2009 - 2011 I was a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Hawai'i, Manoa (US) working within Brian Powell' lab on the 4D-Var Data Assimilation, ROMS nesting and real-time applications in Pacific.

The most of my career I spent in Croatia, working as a Research Scientist (1997 -2009), Research Associate (2011 - 2012), Senior Research Associate (2012 - 2015) and Senior Research Scientist (2015 - 2018) at the Rudjer Boskovic Institute (Croatia).

During 2015 I moved to Western Australia, UWA, Perth and was appointed as visiting Research Assistant Professor.

Currently, I am working as a Research Associate Professor at the Oceans Graduate School, University of Western Australia.

Even though my current position at the UWA is research intensive I am still teaching and supervising PhD and MPE students. Recently, I developed (and will start lecturing) the unit "Modelling in Environmental Engineering" at UWA whilst already teaching "Numerical modelling in Oceanography" at the University of Zagreb, Croatia.

Working as a physical oceanographer I strive to maintain and improve my connections and collaborations across different groups related to bio-geo-chemical modelling to further advance interdisciplinary research approaches.
