I am a PhD student of Computer Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I work as a research assistant with Dr. Michael Gleicher in the Graphics Group and Dr. Bilge Mutlu in the Human-Computer Interaction Group.

As a researcher, I seek to use an understanding of human movement and communication to improve character animation and human-computer interaction. My work has dealt with problems such as: behavior modeling for embodied conversational agents; developing novel tools and techniques for animation editing and authoring; using virtual and augmented reality to enable new forms of situated telepresence and human-agent interaction. My Research page has information about some of these projects. A list of my publications can be found here.

I plan to graduate in the summer of 2016. If you are considering offering me a job, please contact me. You can find my CV here.

I am originally from Croatia, where I received my undergraduate degree in Computer Science. To hear the pronunciation of my name, click hereaudioicon.
