Work experience
I have participated as a lecturer and expert in the development of two projects of international character. I was a member of the working group in four projects responsible for geoecology and sustainable environmental management. I worked on connecting protected areas in the wider region where we can apply the principle of sustainable development with an emphasis on the preservation of landscape and biological diversity in exploiting tourism potential of protected areas. During my study at the University of Zagreb, I worked on the study of conservation and sustainable development geoecological sensitive karst areas in the Dinarides (eg Dalmatian coast). Research has continued in the area of Dinarides (Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro). Each project includes field research, monitoring certain processes (erosion, degradation, corrosion), analysis, workshops, etc.
