I am a Lecturer in Bussiness Analysitics and Transport at the Huddersfield Business School. Prior to join the University of Huddersfield, I worked as a research fellow at the University of Portsmouth, and led the "Travel Behaviour Modelling" workstream for the Solent FTZ Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) project which was funded by the UK Department for Transport (DfT).

I have around 13 years of academic and engineering experience in 4 countries. I have collaborated in interdisciplinary research and technical projects with academic/business partners in the UK and worldwide. 

I have been also involved in many local traffic and transportation projects such as conventional and smart junction design, traffic impact studies, and transportation master plan studies. I was acting as a management committee member from Slovenia, in EU COST Action CA16222: Wider Impacts and Scenario Evaluation of Autonomous and Connected Transport.

Since July 2023, I have been elected as a member of the Executive Committee of the Universities' Transport Study Group (UTSG) which represents about 60 universities across the UK and Ireland!
