About me

Currently a PhD candidate at the Robot Intelligence Lab, Imperial College London, under the supervision of prof Petar Kormushev. Previously interned at DeepMind.

Research Interests

Intersection of artificial intelligence and robotics.


Bio


I obtained my BSc degree in Mechatronics Robotics and Automation, at the Faculty of Technical Sciences, University of Novi Sad in 2011. Afterwards, I completed the double-degree EMARO (European Masters on Advanced Robotics) program and was awarded the MSc degree in 2013.

During 2013-2014, I worked as a research engineer in RIS group, LAAS-CNRS Toulouse on rover locomotion diagnostics using sequential machine learning models.

In 2015-2016, I was as a research assistant in the iBug group, Dept. of Computing, Imperial College London. There I worked on applying deep learning methods for human emotion recognition based on multimodal data, i.e. facial expressions and speech.
