I am a postdoctoral researcher in Computer Science at Stanford University working with Jure Leskovec. My research is focused on developing new machine learning methods for solving challenging problems in biology and biomedicine. I am particularly interested in representation learning of complex high-dimensional datasets in an unsupevised manner, or using a limited number of annotations. My current major research focus lies in the development of computational approaches that can generalize to never-before-seen contexts and tasks, and advancing new discoveries for single-cell genomics. I enjoy interdisciplinary research and collaborating with biomedical research groups. I am involved in Chan Zuckerberg Biohub and Neuro-omics projects.
Previously, I completed my PhD in Computer Science from University of Zagreb in 2019 while working as an early-stage researcher at Rudjer Boskovic Institute. I received University's award for the best thesis. During my PhD, I was also researching at Stanford University and University of Tokyo.
