I graduated from Belgrade University (Faculty of Economics), where I received my MSc. and Ph.D. in Statistics in 1980 and 1989 respectively. I have over 30 years experience as a University professor, international researcher, consultant and government advisor.
I emigrated to New Zealand in March 1995. I was working with The Open Polytechnic of New Zealand until April 2018, when I have retired as an Associate Professor in Statistics and Research Methods.
