RESUME

 
Summary 

A Slovenian raised in the US, I am pursuing a Masters of Business Informatics at School of Economics and Business (SEB) University of Ljubljana. As a 2021 ASEF Junior Fellow, I will conduct research at the University of Wyoming, on projects pertaining to biomedical signal processing, sensor fusion, and virtual reality, under the mentorship of prof. Domen Novak. 

 

As the Project Manager at BLCKB Applied Neuroscience, I primarily focus on product development of Whitebox, a cloud platform for processing EEG. My research on neuromarketing data made me a finalist for science breakthrough of 2020 at the Falling Walls & Berlin Science Week Conference.

 

I jointed BLCKB after COVID19 interrupted my work developing contextual AI tools for movie trailer performance predictions in Dublin’s startup Picasso Analytics founded in collaboration with my collogues from Prague Film School. 

 

My interest in neuroscience started when I volunteered in Epilep.si. I was part of the team that achieved top 5 NASA Space Challenge in 2015 and IEEE Brain hackathon award for the most humanitarian startup in 2016.
