Studies:

  • 1991–1996: University undergraduate studies at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathe-matics (Institute of Chemistry) at the “Sts. Cyril and Methodius University”
  • March 1996: I graduated with the highest average grade (10.00).
  • 1996–2000: Master of Science studies in Chemistry; Master of Science thesis: "Vibrational anharmonicity and vibrational Stark effect of isomorphously isolated XY4n- anions in various matrices. Vibrational spectroscopic and quantum theoretical studies".
  • April 2002: Defended my PhD thesis: "Latent symmetry and accidental degeneracy effects on the vibrational modes of isomorphously isolated tetraoxo anions".
  • August 2008-April-2009: Post-doctoral stay at Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden.

Awards:

  • The Phoenix award from the municipality of Skopje for scientific achievements in 2003;
  • The Vita Pop-Jordanova award for the best young scientist in Macedonia in 2004;
  • Post-doctoral research grant awarded from the Swedish Institute.

Teaching experience:

As a "teaching/research assistant" during my M. Sc. studies I was teaching laboratory + numeri-cal exercises for basic Physical Chemistry courses, Quantum chemistry, Nuclear and radiochem-istry and a number of basic Physical chemistry courses for non-chemists (for students of Biol-ogy, Pharmacy, etc). More recently, after I have become a docent, I am teaching the basic courses of Physical Chemistry I and II, Computer Applications in Biochemistry and Molecular Modeling, as well as the numerical exercises in Nuclear and radiochemistry
