I have PhD in chemical engineering, with specialization on polymeric materials. I worked at the University of Belgrade as assistant professor, teaching polymer chemistry, and then joined industry where I worked as R&D manager, then as a manager of one production unit.
Since 2007 I am managing Cleaner Production Centre in Serbia, established in the frame of a UNIDO-sponsored project.
My main areas of expertise are:
- process optimization,
- polymer design, synthesis and characterization,
- resource efficiency and cleaner production,
- green &sustainable chemistry
- chemical leasing.
I work on number of projects sponsored by UNIDO, Serbian Ministry of Science and Education, International Finance Corporation, UNEP and others.
I published over 40 scientific papers and I am the co-author of 4 patents.
In 2017, I was elected as a President of the RECPNet, global network of Cleaner Production Centres supported by UNIDO and UN Environment.
