I work as an associate research scientist at Disney Reserch Zurich (DRZ) since April 2010. I am a member of the Wireless Networks and Mobile Computing team led by Stefan Mangold. Before I joined  DRZ, I was a PhD student in the Laboratory for Communication Networks at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden. My PhD thesis focused on radio resource allocation mechanisms in cellular and hybrid cellular/ad-hoc radio networks. In 2007, I was as an intern at Ericsson Eurolab in Aachen, Germany, where worked on resource-efficient video streaming in E-MBMS. Before I started my PhD studies, I was a research engineer in the Communication Networks Laboratory at the Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada. I hold M.Sc. and Dipl. Ing. degrees in telecommunications from the University of Belgrade, Serbia.
