Meteorologist
Bio: 

Serbian, MSc - Mina (1988) graduated in 2015 as Master of Science in Meteorology (University of Novi Sad, Serbia). During her studies she completed courses on fluid dynamics, dynamic meteorology and micrometeorology with special focus on the physics of the turbulent Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL), surface and boundary layer parameterization, nonlinear analysis and numerical solutions for modelling the PBL by convective and turbulence closure models. Her MSc thesis focused on modelling the current and future climatic suitability for the establishment of Aedes albopictus in Serbia through the use of three mechanistic models. Expected change in spatial patterns of the vector and general trends concerning future distributions were analysed with results obtained from climatic projections from four different statistical and dynamical regional climate models.Mina joined Avia-GIS in 2016 as a PhD student under the MosqDyn project, where she works with the design and implementation of meteorological wireless sensor networks (WSN). A WSN is a self-configuring network of small meteorological sensor nodes communicating among themselves using radio signals, and deployed to sense the physical world.
