I am Senior Lecturer in Geoinformatics at the School of Geography & Sustainable Development, University of St Andrews, Scotland, United Kingdom. Since 2018 I am also Associate Director of the Bell Edwards Geographic Data Institute.
I am originally from Ljubljana, Slovenia and I have two degrees in Applied Mathematics from the University of Ljubljana. I obtained my PhD in Geoinformatics from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden under the supervision of Dr Hans Hauska. Before coming to Scotland, I worked first as a postdoctoral fellow and then as Lecturer in Geocomputation at the National Centre for Geocomputation, National University of Ireland Maynooth. Previously I was a researcher at the Geoinformatics Department of the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm and a teaching assistant in Mathematics at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the University of Ljubljana.
In the period 2015-2019 I served as Co-chair of the Commission on Visual Analytics of the International Cartographic Assocation.
Since January 2019 I am Associate Editor of the International Journal of Geographical Information Science.
