As part of my master's thesis research focused on using DLC Coatings in Engines in 2019 I joined Ducom Instruments in the Netherlands.

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 from 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 due to tribocorrosion processes.
