I earned my Ph.D. in Oceanography from the University of Zagreb, Croatia. My primary research interests are in the area of marine sediments. More specifically, I have been investigating origin and characteristics of surface sediments in the Eastern Adriatic and recent processes affecting their distribution. Most recently I moved shorewards and started to examine beach resilience and beach sediment fate after storms for the purposes of beach management. Courses I taught are Marine Geology, Environmental Geology, Life on Earth. Currently, I am postdoctoral research fellow at the Lancaster Environment Centre (Lancaster University), funded by the Croatian government and Marie Curie Actions- People-2011-COFUND program.
