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 gamma ray bursts, tidal disruption of stars in vicinity of massive black holes, 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 and president of the Slovenian national competition in astronomy.
