Work experiences

As a biologist, I am both professionally and personally interested in physiology and ethology of bees.

I have gained professional experience both in Slovenia (NIB; UL NTF) and abroad (University of Missouri, USA; Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen, Germany). My past work was focused on sensory physiology and information processing in the CNS.
