Starting from the 1st of March 2018, I am no longer employed in academia. I will keep this webpage updated with mathematics related research as long as I have access.

Research interests

General areas of my research are partial differential equations and calculus of variations (particularly, parametrised measures and compactness by compensation theory).
I am also interested in parallel computing and applications of parallel computing on GPUs.


I defended my PhD thesis H-distributions and compactness by compensation [.pdf file] on 2nd of June 2017 under supervision of prof. Nenad Antonic.
The defence committee: prof. Marko Vrdoljak (the chairman), prof. Nenad Antonic, prof. Evgenij J. Panov.

I have attened the following PhD classes:
master degree:      Compactness by Compensation, July 2012, University of Zagreb (advisor: prof. Nenad Antonic)
bachelor degree: July 2010, University of Zagreb


You can find my short CV here.
