Short CV: 

I studied economics and operations research in Belgrade, and received my PhD from the biology department at the Humboldt University of Berlin.

In my research, I make connections between ecological and financial resilience and use models from ecology and complex systems to study contagion in financial networks. For instance, I study how information flow in financial networks affects the herd behavior that arises in financial crises (e.g. liquidity hoarding).

I also study the use of analogical models in the history of economics. Here, I recognize a strong methodological contrast between models inspired by classical physics (e.g. mechanics and thermodynamics) and models inspired by life sciences (e.g. evolutionary theory, ecology).

Research Interests: 

-systemic risk in financial networks

-resilience of complex adaptive systems

-analogical models in economics
