I am an Ambizione Fellow funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) and hold the position of Scientific Collaborator at the People-Centered Computing Lab. This lab is headed by Professors Marc Langheinrich and Silvia Santini within the Faculty of Informatics at the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) in Switzerland.
I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Jozef Stefan Institute in Slovenia under the supervision of Professors Matjaz Gams and Mitja Lustrek. My thesis was recognized with the prestigious “Jožef Stefan golden emblem,” indicating an outstanding PhD thesis in Slovenia. As of 2023, I serve as an Associate Editor at IMWUT (ACM on Interactive, Mobile, Wearable and Ubiquitous Technologies); and as a Board Member at the Global SNSF Fellows Network (https://www.globalsfellows.net/).
My primary research focus is on Artificial Intelligence (AI), specifically in the areas of machine learning, federated learning, and explainable AI (XAI). I apply these concepts to various domains such as wearable computing, affective computing, and digital healthcare.
