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.
