I obtained my Bachelors degree from New York University Abu Dhabi majoring in Electrical Engineering summa cum laude with my senior thesis on developing a wearable armband with sensory fusion with a machine learning system for risk score prediction of acute myocardial infarction. I received the Rhodes Scholarship as the first Bosnian in the award's history and completed my Masters in Computer Science at Oxford before starting the current DPhil. My masters thesis, which was awarded a distinction, concerned developing robust ensemble models for increasing CRISPR specificity and decreasing off-target incidence. I am passionate about utilising the power of artificial intelligence for the improvement of human health conditions, specifically focused on cardiovascular disease and acute medicine. Outside of my immediate research interests, I keep involved in the AI ethics debate and have been a member of the Mozilla Foundation Working Group on Building Trustworthy AI among other engagements. I love spending my time swimming and reading murder mystery novels.
