I am an Associate Professor of Mathematics at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics (FMF) of the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia). I am also affiliated with the Institute of Mathematics, Physics and Mechanics (IMFM). My main research area is in noncommutative algebra, in particular, ring theory, and I am also interested in questions about (weighted) automata.
Before coming to Ljubljana, I was the professor of algebra at the University of Graz (Austria), as head of the Algebra and Number Theory research group. As a postdoc, I held a FWF Erwin Schrödinger Postdoctoral Fellowship, visiting the University of Waterloo (Canada) and Dartmouth College (USA).
My Curriculum Vitae.
