About Me

Hi there! I'm a student of Bachelor studies of Informatics at Faculty of Mathematics, University of Belgrade. I also take time to work on my personal programming projects, some of which you can see below and more which are available on my GitHub. My main focus are Android apps and backend programming using Play! Framework. Currently, I'm focused on R and expanding my knowledge in domain of statistics.

I have other interests apart from programming as well. I volunteer as a student Wiki ambassador at Wikimedia Serbia, working with teachers, professors and students to organize class activities in which we make Wikipedia and Wikidata better resources for everyone. I'm curious about psychology, and I've attended psychology programmes at Petnica Science Center and presented my paper on annual participants' conference. I'm an avid English speaker—so far, I've had the chance to present at a couple of English-language conferences. I also enjoy design (though I'm in no way proficient).

Scraper is an extensible program used for scraping the data, basic data manipulation and simulating enrollment process, optionally with different weighting criteria. Web server pulls data from scraper, builds a database and presents an interface for ploting the data, using a special query language built on top of SQL. Desktop client uses the server as an API and provides point-and-clict interface for creating queries. It was a subject of my high school graduation thesis (in Serbian), which was recognized as one of that year's best theses in the field of informatics.
