I am a senior scientist at the Ruder Boskovic Institute (Zagreb, Croatia) and honorary fellow at NIOO-KNAW.
My expertise covers evolutionary ecology of bonding, life-history trade offs, evidence synthesis, and data and code standards. I strive to apply my knowledge of different modelling approaches and Open Science to study and optimize scientific process itself - called meta-science and to enable ecological research to reach its full potential.
As a sole carer of a toddler, I have been experiencing many obstacles in managing my scientific career. I hope that being vocal about this can help in changing the current evaluation, expectation, and promotion systems in science, and encourage practices that accommodate those in less-common life-situations.
Get in touch if you have any questions about my work, ideas for collaborative projects, or if you think your group would benefit from a workshops on open practices, meta-science, or meta-analysis.
