I have a BSc in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Pristina (UP) in Kosovo. After my bachelor I joined Limak Airport Service Institute (LimakASI), where I obtained a Degree in Airport and Aviation Management from Bo─čaziçi University, leading to my first job as Mechanical Engineer at Pristina International Airport (PIA).

After three years of experience with PIA in 2017 I got a scholarship with the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Program in Tribology, where I spent a semester in each of the following universities, University of Leeds, University of Ljubljana, University of Coimbra. As part of my master's thesis in 2019 I joined Ducom Instruments in the Netherlands focusing research on using DLC Coatings in Engines.

Upon finishing my Master's Degree, from 2019 to 2021 I joined the European Union Office in Kosovo as a Project Monitoring Expert in the Energy Sector.

Starting in November 2021, I am part of the BioTrib team under the Marie Curie – Innovative Training Network, researching the nature origin and degradation of implant debris.
