I am a Lecturer in undergraduate and postgraduate manufacturing engineering and engineering management courses in the School of Mechanical and Design Engineering at the University of Portsmouth.

My background is in manufacturing processes, machine tools and systems and CAD/CAM. I obtained a MSc in Industrial Engineering with the project "Production Line Performance Optimization in the Beverage Industry" at University of Split, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture. At the same university, during my PhD project "Implementation of compressed cold air using vortex tube in milling process", under the mentorship of professor Drazen Bajic, I developed a passion for environmentally friendly manufacturing processes and systems.
