## About me

I grew up in Zagreb where I finished elementary and high school education. During that time I won several prizes on national mathematical competitions, and I represented Croatia on two International Mathematical Olympiads. I was also on the schools' chess teams (playing 2nd-4th board) that won the City of Zagreb Championship five times.

I graduated from the University of Zagreb in 2008 with a *Graduate Engineer* degree majoring in *Mathematical Statistics and Computer Science*. As an udergraduate I worked as an editor (in various roles) in the Croatian Mathematical Society. Later, I was elected to the *Executive Board* and was a member of the *Assembly* of the Croatian Mathematical Society.

From 2008 to 2016 I was employed as a Teaching/Research Assistant within the *Divison for Probability and Statistics* at the Department of Mathematics, University of Zagreb. In 2010/2011 I enrolled in the *Mathematics PhD Program* at the University of Washington. I got my PhD in March of 2015 in the probability group under the supervison of Professor Krzysztof Burdzy.

In summer of 2014 I was an *Analytic Science - Intern* at FICO working in customer account managment improving prediction scoring models. From May 2015, I work in Microsoft as a *Software Engineer*. I worked for Bing maps & local search until April of 2017, and now I work for Cortana at work.

I am recipient of many awards and honors, some of which are: *Croatian Power Company Award for High School Students*, *National Excelence Undergraduate Scholarship*, *National Institute of Education Honor*, *The City of Zagreb Merit Scholarship*, *Tomo Horvatinčić Foundation Fellowship*, *UW Department of Mathematics Academic Merit Award* and *McKibben & Merner Fellowship*.
