Recently, I obtained a postdoctoral project from the Slovenian Research and Innovation Agency. More information about it can be found here.

I finished my PhD in Mathematics in 2021 at the University of Ljubljana under the supervision of dr. Sandi Klavžar and dr. Csilla Bujtás, and spent one year as a postdoctoral fellow at the Simon Fraser University in Canada working in the research group of dr. Bojan Mohar.

My main research area is graph theory, with occasional topics that focus more on combinatorics or geometry. I have been involved in the research of domination games, the Cops and Robber game, the strong geodetic problem, interval colorings, investigation of several families related to Fibonacci cubes, and more.


At the University of Ljubljana, I have been a teaching assistant for the following courses.

Bachelor's level courses:
  • Discrete Mathematics 1 (17/18, 18/19),
  • Discrete Structures 1 (19/20, 20/21),
  • Discrete Structures 2 (22/23),
  • Mathematics II (22/23),
  • Mathematics for Talented Students (17/18, 19/20),
  • Combinatorics 1 (22/23),
  • Analysis 1 (22/23, 23/24),
  • Analysis 2 (22/23),
  • Elementary Geometry (22/23).
Master's level courses:
  • Combinatrics (17/18, 19/20),
  • Graph Theory (18/19, 20/21, 22/23),
  • Topics in Discrete Mathematics: Symmetric functions (18/19),
  • Topics in Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science:
  • Combinatorial Methods and Algorithms (19/20).

While at Simon Fraser University, I was a lecturer for the undergraduate course Foundations of Analytical and Quantitative Reasoning (21/22).
