I am doing research on graph data management and graph processing systems as a member of Large-Scale Data and Systems Group under the supervision of Prof. Peter Pietzuch and in collaboration with Dr. Jana Giceva from TU Munich. Broadly speaking, the main focus of my work is design and development of efficient streaming graph processing engines. My PhD studies are sponsored by EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in High Performance Embedded and Distributed Systems.

I complemented my PhD research with a 4-month software development internship in Oracle Labs, where I enjoyed working on performance optimisation of Oracle's PGX.D distributed large-scale graph querying engine.

Prior to starting my PhD studies, I obtained MRes degree in Computing from Imperial College London (2016), as well as Master's (2015, Summa Cum Laude) and Bachelor's (2013) degrees in Informatics from my hometown's University of Rijeka.

During my studies in Rijeka, I worked as a research assistant in LangNet group, where I investigated the role of complex networks in natural language processing. I also worked as an assistant in the CNPSLab, where I participated in teaching and development of several systems-related courses at University of Rijeka.

My tools of trade involve modern C++, Emacs, Linux and preferably a mechanical keyboard. In the past I have also worked with go and python. I am interested in many computing-related topics, mostly revolving around large-scale systems of any kind, data management, and graphs.

Apart from those, I enjoy rock climbing, running, cycling, yoga, music, learning about the world, and meeting new people of all cultures, shapes and sizes.
