I am interested in water resources management, hydrology, and issues related to environmental science, and have pursued graduate studies in departments of civil and environmental engineering with a focus on water resources. I got my M.S. degree with emphasis on stochastic hydrology from University of Belgrade and my Ph.D. degree with emphasis on urban hydrology from The Pennsylvania State University, along with a minor in computational science. In my research I used a lens of complex systems to study urban watersheds. I looked at various complex system properties (such as long term memory, complexity and scaling), while accounting for non-stationarities present in urban watershed. I was interested in understanding if and how these properties differ in their behavior between urban and natural watersheds and what drives such behavior.
For my project at SESYNC I will work on urban green infrastructure (UGI) spatial optimization. The goal is to focus on and maximize the UGI multi-functionality, and understand what will be the effect of such scenarios on urban heat island stress. The term “multi-functionality” refers to the multiple ecosystem services that can be provided by UGI, such as reduction of stormwater volumes, urban heat island stress as well as social vulnerability, or improving water and air quality, landscape connectivity, etc.. Often, the implementation of UGI’s is done from the perspective of streamflow volume reduction and/or water quality improvement while other ecosystem services are implied but rarely an integral part of the design.
