I am Professor of Astronomy at the University of Nova Gorica. Before coming here I worked at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia and at the Astrophysics Research Institute, Liverpool John Moores University, UK.

My main fields of research are tidal disruption of stars in vicinity of massive black holes, gamma ray bursts, electromagnetic counterparts of gravitational wave events, and relativistic navigation satellite systems.

I teach astronomy courses at undergraduate and graduate levels.

I am the editor in charge of the Portal v vesolje, president of the Slovenian national competition in astronomy, and president of the IAU National Committee of Astronomy of Slovenia.

Since 2018 I am the president of the Slovenian Commission for Equal Opportunities in Science and since 2019 president of the Council for Science and Technology of the Republic of Slovenia.
