Research interests

Research interests

My research interests are in developing different neurorehabilitation methods to help patients with sensory-motor impairments to improve their sensory and motor functions.


I am interested in Brain Computer Interface (BCI), as an new form of non-muscular channel for communication between a patients and its environment, which compensates a loss of sensory-motor functions or alternatively provides strengthening or modulation of preserved neuro-muscular pathways in patients with impairments of the Central Nervous System. I am in particular interested in developing and implementing patient managed brain computer interface systems for home based neurorehabilitation.

Further areas of interest are improvements of existing rehabilitation therapies combining Brain Computer Interface and Functional electrical stimulation and exploring correlation between functional recovery and changes in the brain responses i.e., brain plasticity.
I am also using BCI for operant conditioning training of brain (neurofeedback) for treatment of Central Neuropathic pain following injuries to the Spinal Cord

Between 1992 and 2000 I worked on industrial process control as a Chartered Engineer (Serbian Professional State Exam approved by Serbian Chamber of Commerce). I received my PhD from the Centre for Sensory-Motor Interaction, Aalborg University, Denmark in 2004, where I spent one more year as a PostDoc. Between 2005 and 2007 I worked as a senior research officer at the Brain-Computer Interface Group, Department of  Computer Science, University of Essex.
