Ana is a Senior Lecturer in Urban Water Management in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department. She has a first class degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Belgrade, Serbia. Before commencing her MSc, Ana worked at the same University as a teaching assistant in Fluid Mechanics and Hydrometry. She obtained a masters degree with distinction in Hydrology for Environmental Management from Imperial College London in 2009 and a PhD in Earth Science and Engineering from the same university in 2013.
Ana's story about her work, teaching, students and influences can be found here as a part of the Royal Meteorological Society Influential Voices in Climate initiative
Ana’s research interests are in developing analytical and numerical models for the simulation of urban and subsurface systems, which can be implemented in the areas of urban hydrology and urban ecosystems, groundwater-urban infrastrcture interactions, and urban water and energy use. She is leading the IAHS Panta Rhei programme Working Group on Energy and Food Impacts on Water. She is also leading the Imperial College London initiative, together with the British Geological Survey, University of Birmingham and Atkins, through the Centre for Research and Innovation, to address the issue of groundwater infiltration into urban infrastructure.
Ana is the Outreach Coordinator for the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. She is coordinating activities with a primary aim of getting young people excited by civil engineering and the prospect of studying it here at Imperial.
