Visiting Professor at the Centre for Bio-Inspired Technology, Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Previously I have been at Imperial for nearly 15 years in various roles. Currently I am Professor of Computing (AI, ML, Data) at the School of Computing and Engineering, University of West London.

I received the BEng and MSc from the Department of Electrical Engineering, Belgrade University, Serbia and the PhD in physics from Imperial College London, UK. I was an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Belgrade University, a Senior Research Associate at the Dep. of Physics & Astronomy, University College London, and the Wilfred Corrigan Research Fellow at Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Imperial College London.

    Current research:

    • ML - neuromorphic systems, spiking neural networks
    • Computational Neuroscience/Mathematical Biology
    • Neural stimulation and recording, Neuromodulatory Implants
    • Biomodeling, Optogenetics
    • Nanoelectronics - Fault tolerant architectures
