Mirjana graduated in 2014 as a M.Sc. Civil Engineer from the Faculty of Civil Engineering, University of Belgrade, specialized in Structural Engineering.  For her Master Thesis “Dynamic Analysis of 3D Frame Structures Using the Spectral Element Method” she developed a numerical model using Matlab in order to obtain dynamic response of multistory frame structures subjected to traffic and explosion induced vibrations in time and frequency domain. After spending 5 months in Germany in 2013 as a part of Internship Programme of German Business, she started working in Belgrade as Design engineer, and later Project coordinator in the company Armont SP, specialized in Aluminum and Glass Facades. Parallel with the work she was enrolled a PhD course at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Department of Engineering Mechanics and Theory of Structures.

In 2016 she moved to Germany to start a PhD course in Wind Engineering at Ruhr University Bochum. During her research in the field of structural health monitoring, she will be working on development of the method for inverse wind load identification applicable to wind energy converters, in order to improve the procedures for the fatigue assessment and residual structural life-time estimation through wind tunnel experiments and full-scale investigations.
