I obtained my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Economics at the Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Zagreb, and a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics at the Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb.
After graduation, I worked at the Ministry of Finance, Republic of Croatia, as an Expert associate in State treasury.
I also worked at University College for Law and Finance, as a teaching assistant.
In January 2016 I joined the Chair of Management Accounting as a research assistant and PhD student.
The main focus of our research is on the economic assessment of energy-related investment decisions, made by companies that are users of energy, such as in manufacturing, transportation, or farming. These energy-related investment decisions include all decisions that have a significant and long-term impact on a company’s usage and cost of energy. Because of its energy requirements, a company may also start producing energy and, if there’s something left, sell energy. Still, they are essentially energy users—not suppliers. By understanding how companies make these decisions and by providing methods for making these decisions in a better way, we can support the realization of public policy targets for investments in renewable energy. Decisions of individual economic actors make the Energiewende a reality-or not.
As “Übungsleiter” of Management Accounting 2, I am responsible for the tutorial that takes place during the winter term. I will also hold a seminar in the summer semester.
