I was born in Belgrade, Serbia. I earned my bachelor's and master's degree at Faculty of Mathematics, University of Belgrade. My master's thesis topic was kernel density estimation (KDE) and its applications in symmetry testing. I was also working on a project in which new exponentiality test based on characterization of exponential distribution and KDE is proposed. Currently, I am a first year PhD student in Statistics at the London School of Economics and Political Science. My PhD supervisor is Professor Piotr Fryzlewicz. For further details please see my CV.
