about me

As a Professor at both the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the University of Southern Denmark (SDU), I lead two dynamic research groups focused on modeling, simulation, and data analytics. At KIT, I head the Systems, Data, Simulation and Energy (SYDSEN) research group at the Institute of Applied Informatics and Formal Description Methods, while at SDU I lead the Modelling, Simulation and Data Analytics (MSDA) research group at the SDU Software Engineering section. Alongside my academic roles, I also serve as a Director-at-Large on the Board of Directors of The Society for Modeling & Simulation International (SCS) and am a Senior Member of IEEE

My research focuses on modeling and simulation of stochastic systems, reliability modeling and analysis, and data analytics for decision support in various contexts. Prior to my tenure at KIT and SDU, I served as an Assistant Professor at the College of Information Technology at the United Arab Emirates University. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University “Otto-Von-Guericke” in Magdeburg in Germany in 2005, where I was also a member of the Simulation Group at the Institute of Simulation and Graphics.

Originally from Macedonia, I obtained my Diploma in Computer Science from the Institute of Informatics (now Faculty of Computer Science and Engineering) at the University “Sts. Cyril and Methodius” in Skopje. Having had the privilege of living and working in several different places, each has contributed to my understanding of what “home” means to me. However, there will always be a special place in my heart for Macedonia, where I grew up and feel a deep sense of belonging. I would highly encourage anyone who has the opportunity to visit Macedonia and discover its distinctive beauty and rich culture.
