About me

I am assistant professor at the Department of Physics in Zagreb. My research interest are in the area of experimental high energy physics.

Currently I am focusing on investigation of relativistic heavy-ion collisions within the PHENIX experiment at RHIC. Previously I was participating in A1-collaboration at MAMI focusing on reserach of nuclear and nucleon structure.

Development and applications of new detector systems have been very important parts of my reserach. This includes development and application of the Silicon Detector Telescope (SDT) for electron scattering experiments and MAMI, and application of the Hadron Blind Detector (HBD) for investigations of heavy-ion collisions at RHIC.
