I am currently a Doctoral degree student in the Centre for Wireless Communications, University of Oulu, Finland. I received my bachelor’s degree in electronics and telecommunication engineering from the University of Belgrade, Serbia, in 2012 and the master’s degree in wireless communications engineering from the University of Oulu, Finland, in 2014. I have five-year reaserch experience in CWC, University of Oulu in the area of 5G and future networks. My research interests include network slicing, low latency communications, MEC, spectrum sharing. I have experience in teaching and conducting lab work for postgraduate students.
