I am leading the computer networks team since Sep 2011. I use my knowledge, experience, and industrial contacts to bring changes to the programme to suit current industry standards. I am the main contact for School’s Cisco Academy, Academy Support Centre, and Instructor Training Centre. 

Fellow of the Higher Education Academy

I am currently teaching five modules at Masters and undergraduate courses. These include:

  • Implementing IP Routing and Switching (Masters)
  • Advanced Routing
  • Local Area Networks
  • Computer Network Architecture
  • IP Internetworking

Some of the other modules I taught over  the past few years include:

  • Internet Security
  • Wide Area Networks
  • Network Management

As part of Cisco Academy programme, I teach CCNA course to part-time students in the evenings. I am currently supervising one full-time PhD student and number of Masters and undergraduate students. 

Current personal research interests include

  • Routing
  • Performance Evaluation
  • Voice over IP
  • IPTV
  • Random Neural Networks
  • Quality of Service (QoS)
  • LTE networks
  • IPv6

I am a Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) and a Cisco Certified Academy Instructor (CCAI). I am also a reviewer for Scientific-professional Journal Tehnički vjesnik/Technical Gazette.
