a) scientific research projects
b) Expert work
My research at the Agricultural Institute of Slovenia (2011-still work there) is focused on biological and integrated pest management. My long-term goal is to contribute to greater self-sufficiency with high quality food in Slovenia, whilst decreasing the deleterious impact of agriculture on the environment.
My education is interdisciplinary to say the least. I obtained a university diploma in botany and plant physiology, PhD in plant physiology and biochemistry whereas my postdoctoral education was mainly in the fields of applicative entomology, microbiology and molecular biology. My current career path demonstrates my capacities to acquire new skills and competencies, and to adapt to new situations. As a rule, I finish the scientific or applicative industrial projects entrusted to me ahead of schedule. During the extremely dynamic and flexible work I collaborated with public research institutions as well as the industrial sector.
During graduate and postgraduate studies (1998-2004) I acquired plenty of experience from the field of environmental protection, environmental impact assessment and working with and leading groups of people.
