Work experience
I participated in nine scientific projects in the fields of: the impact of air pollution on forest
ecosystems and monitoring of forest soil, and also, Control of water erosion to the protection
of water facilities and water quality . Now I participate in project "Studying climate change
and its influence on the environment: impacts, adaptation and mitigation“.
I participated in the expert projects where I worked on preparing the technical
documentation of the main project of Shelterbelts, and on preparing of documentation on the
state of the environment for General Master Plan for Transport in Serbia.

I was manager of following projects: „Biological recultivation and proposed measures to maintain plantations“,

„Monitoring of soil - the current state of soil quality in the flooded areas of the Kolubara River“

and „Carbon stocks in the soils of natural meadow ecosystems in the highland regions of Serbia“.
