Short Biography

  • Since January 2017: Research Assistant and PhD candidate at Institute of Information-Oriented Control (ITR), Technical University of Munich
  • December 2016: M.Sc. in Automation and Control (cum laude), Politecnico di Milano, Italy
  • July 2014: B.Eng. in Automatic Control and Electronics, University of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Research Interests

  • Distributed and decentralized computation
  • Energy grids and Autonomous traffic

Working Field

  • I am currently involved in a project REFLEXES, in cooperation with COMSYS

Current Projects

  • I am always searching for motivated students interested in my research. Please feel free to contact me so we can discuss possible topics.


I welcome applications from students with a strong background and interest in fundamental and applied control theory. Please with your application include your resume and transcript of records.
