I am an assistant professor in the Department of Astronomy at the University of Belgrade. I hold a PhD in Astronomy from the University of Belgrade.
I have been involved in numerous international collaborations and projects, supported by different funding agencies and companies, including the European Commission, the Serbian Science Foundation, and NASA. I was/am the supervisor of three completed and two ongoing PhD thesis. Currently, I am a scientist in charge at the University of Belgrade of the H2020 MCSA project Stardust-R.
My research interest focuses on small solar system objects and, in particular, on collisionally formed asteroid families and covers a wide range of related studies. I have also studied a new class of solar system objects, the so-called main-belt comets. I published about 50 peer-reviewed journal papers and over 100 publications in total. For my contribution in the field of asteroid research, the asteroid ”11805 (1981 EL13)” has been renamed ”Novakovic” by the IAU Minor Planet Center.
