I`m research scientist and co-founder of the Sharklab (Malta, EU) with locally based teams in more than 15 countries. My scientific studies include morphology, anatomy, embryology, taxonomy, paleontology and ecology of cartilaginous fish. I have worked on the EU legal finning ban through Shark Alliance and EEA (European Elasmobranch Association). My primarily studies are based on the comparative odontology and population ecology of sharks. I carrier titles of deep diver specialist; also specialist in night diving, low and limited visibility, wreck diving and underwater navigation.

I've been nominated for Person of the Year award for my contributions in the fields of ichthyology in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Besides, my biography is included into Lexicon of prominent citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
