I am a Research Assistant at the University of St Andrews, School of Computer Science. My main research interests include runtime systems for parallel programming languages, scheduling and load balancing for heterogeneous distributed systems, parallel functional programming and computer algebra.

I came to this beautiful and sunny (well, not really) town in 2007, after working for three years as a teaching assistant at the University of Banja Luka, where I also got my first degree in Mathematics and Computer Science. I finished my PhD at the School of Computer Science, Univeristy of St Andrews under supervision of Prof. Kevin Hammond in 2011, and after that I have worked as a postdoc on several different projects.

I am a member of school's Functional Programming Group, and also a member of Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Computational Algebra at the University of St Andrews.


Here is the list of current and past projects that I have worked on



Grid-GUM Runtime Environment for Glasgow Parallel Haskell

SCALES Work-Stealing Simulator for Computational Grids


I am originally from Bosnia and Herzegovina. I was born in the city of Sarajevo, in Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. I have moved to Banja Luka in 1992, where I lived until 2007.

I am married to Rada Janjic, and we have a lovely daughter, Marija.

I am a big fan of american alt-rock band Sonic Youth. I also like prog-rock (Genesis, Yes, Caravan, Camel, Pink Floyd etc.) and 50s and 60s jazz (Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman etc.)
