About Me

After graduating from the School of Electrical Engineering in Belgrade in 2006, I worked for five years as embedded systems developer at the Institute Mihailo Pupin in Belgrade. At the time, my research was closely linked to everyday issues I was facing when designing printed-circuit boards: signal integrity, transmission lines, antennas, RF amplifiers, and power plane resonances. In 2010 and 2011, I visited the Processor Architecture Laboratory (LAP) at EPFL, as part of the SNSF-SCOPES project Advancing Embedded Systems Research in Serbia. It was then that I started being interested in hardware acceleration using field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and coarse-grain reconfigurable arrays (CGRAs). In 2013, I obtained a PhD degree at the School of Electrical Engineering in Belgrade with the thesis entitled A method for designing domain-specific reconfigurable arrays. At the beginning of 2013, I moved to Switzerland to pursue my research career by taking the post of a scientific collaborator at The School of Engineering and Management Vaud in Yverdon-les-Bains, where I worked on the European Union FP7-funded project STRUCTURES (Strategies for the Improvement of Critical Infrastructure Resilience to EM attacks). In September 2016, I joined the EPFL School of Computer and Communication Sciences and the Parallel Systems Architecture Laboratory (PARSA) as a scientific assistant, where I continue building my career in research and teaching.

Today, my research interests span the areas of field-programmable technology, electronic design automation (EDA) and, more recently, electrical-level attacks and countermeasures for reconfigurable hardware. In the EDA space, I work on methods for designing domain-specific reconfigurable arrays, on hardware and software acceleration of VLSI and FPGA placement and routing, on machine-learning approaches for reducing the leakage power of FPGAs and on the analysis and design of FPGA routing architectures.

I serve on the program committees of various conferences (FPGA, FCCM, and FPL), and review for IEEE TCAD, IEEE TVLSI, IEEE TC, IEEE TEMC, IEEE Access, IEEE TPDS, and ACM TRETS. I am a member of EcoCloud, the EPFL center for sustainable cloud computing.

I am the mother of Djordje and Lucia. We love travelling the world, making friends, and enjoying good food and movies.
