My main research activity is studying potential effects of microplastics and other pollutants on the terrestrial organisms. I am interested in sublethal physiological responses of the organisms, exposed to a different type of pollutants which do not induce pronounced negative effects.

I graduated in Biology (august 2018) from Biotechnical Faculty, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. The title of the thesis is: Effects of microplastics on feeding and growth rate of
terrestrial isopods after long-term exposure.

In October 2012, I started the interdisciplinary doctoral study Bioscience, research area Biology.

Awards, honors, and grants:

  • (2018) Faculty award, Biotechnical Faculty, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia
  • (2012-2018) Zois Scholarship
  • (2012) Silver award at the national competition for the research work: The course of infectious mononucleosis and the frequency of occurrence of “kissing disease” among secondary school students: a research assignment.
