I have a broad interest in ecology, conservation of species and habitats, evolutionary ecology, and behavior of animals (including humans). My current efforts focus on using my scientific expertise (evolutionary ecology) to bridge the gap between ecology/evolutionary biology and Open Science tools and principles, with a special focus of Open Data to address many challenging questions. I also combining a passion for development and application of new statistical methods (e.g. social network models, multi-event models, meta-analysis) with my general interests in different aspects of the world that surrounds us to study phenomena we observe in nature and human societies.
I am also a pianist and a singer: I compose classical piano music, and am co-founder, lead singer and composer for my band, the Balkan Wanderers.
