Long Bio

I have finished my Post-Master (Diplôme d’Ingénieur de specialisation) in Security in Computer Systems and Communications at EURECOM, France. Where currently I'm a PhD Candidate at Tallinn Technical University, Tallinn Estonia, within research topics cyber risk and cyber insurance.

As well as, visiting/remote lecturer in Faculty Humanistic Studies. I’m affiliated with Master of Cyber Security Studies at the University of Donja Gorica, Podgorica, Montenegro.

My Vita ->

Much of my research has been about cyber security as part of national security awareness, risk assessment, identity/risk management, cyber defence, cyber risk, cyber insurance, cyber crime, socio-technical aspects, methodological approach to awareness, password attacks, frequently occurring security incidents, threats, etc. My current work focuses on cyber risk and cyber insurance, defining correlation between threats vs. vulnerabilities, and likelihood of impact loss. I’m also interested in techniques and methods for data analysis and data science / mining.

Moreover, for everyday tasks usually I use: Emacs, org-mode, LaTeX, Linux (Lubuntu); windows 7, FreeMind, GIMP, and many other open source software. Additionally I use for development and for data mining the following: Python, R, Beautiful Soup, IPython and many others.

I am very interested in photographing and I own Nikon 80 DSLR, cooking, travelling and skiing. Sometimes, I go to yoga class, DJing - here is the music that I love and the one that I can not live without, and many other things.
