About me

Hi, I am a Senior Researcher at Virtual Vehicle Research GmbH (Graz University of Technology, Austria), Europe’s largest research and development center for virtual vehicle technology. 

My research interests lie in the broad area of Semantic Web, Natural Language Processing (NLP), Knowledge Discovery, Knowledge Representation, and Reasoning. I am especially interested in Semantic Web Technologies (ontologies, RDF, SPARQL), Semantic Reasoning (SWRL), and the Large Language Models (LLMs).

My roots trace back to Serbia, where I embarked on an educational and professional odyssey, culminating in a move to Austria in 2017. Now, I find joy and inspiration in the beautiful city of Graz, where I live with my husband and son.

Beyond the world of research, I am an avid reader with a voracious appetite for books and a profound love for history. Traveling is my window to new experiences, and I am deeply committed to giving back to the community through charity work.

Outreach & Empowerment: I plan to dedicate 30 minutes each week to offer guidance/suggestions/mentorship to whoever is in need. Please contact me to schedule a meeting if you would like to chat about life (Education/Books/History/Culture), career path, or research ideas related to NLP/LLMs/SemanticWeb.
