Background Link to CV


Since 1996, my research activities have been taking place at the intersection between informatics, mathematics, physics and biology, with a focus on conception and implementation of algorithms for biomedical signal and image processing.

My first research activities (1996-1999, University of Belgrade, Serbia) were in biomechanics modeling and signal processing for control of walking in paraplegic subjects. They evolved towards multidimensional biomedical data processing during my PhD thesis (1999-2003, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne - EPFL, Switzerland), through development of image processing algorithms for computer-assisted surgery and structural biology. During my postdoc (2004-2008, University Pierre and Marie Curie, IMPMC-UMR 7590, Paris, France), I have specialized in electron-microscopy image processing for three-dimensional reconstruction of biological macromolecular complexes.

I obtained a Tenured Associate Scientist position at the French National Centre for Scientific Research – CNRS in 2008 and a Research Director Habilitation from the Life Sciences Department of the University Pierre and Marie Curie in 2015.
