Holds a Ph.D. degree from the International Digital Laboratory, Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG), University of Warwick, UK. Has an MSc (2009) and a BSc (2006) with honors from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. She was a Coordinator of CS/IS Department in period of 2009-2011 and a Curriculum Committee member from 2007-2011. In 2013, started a first Computer Graphics club where she is working on a development of educational computer games with student members. She has published papers at international conferences and journals and is interested in research topics such as serious games, visualization and visual perception, multi-modal perception, cultural digitalization, human computer interaction, database systems, data mining techniques and applications, and ICT in education. She is particularly interested in doing further research in development of serious games with applications in early childhood development.
