Welcome to my page! I am Marija Selakovic, software engineer and developer advocate. Currently, I work at crate.io where I help our open source users to be successful with the CrateDB database. I also produce technical content, speak at developer conferences and manage collaborations with other interesting open-source projects.

Prior joining Crate.io I have worked as a reseacher and research engineer on automated program analysis and testing for improving software quality. These topics I discovered in 2014 when I joined TU Darmstadt as a Ph.D. student under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Michael Pradel. After exiting and very productive four and a half years, I completed my studies with the dissertation on Actionable Program Analyses for Improving Software Performance. Before moving to Germany, I had a great opportunity to study at VU University Amsterdam and University of L’Aquila, where I obtained a Master’s degree in Software Engineering. My master thesis focuses on Application of MDE principles in the JEE design and development and was done in the collaboration with IBM, The Netherlands. Besides my master studies, I have also worked as Academy Assistant at Network Institute of VU University Amsterdam. Furthermore, my journey as a computer scientist started at University of Belgrade, where I completed my bachelor studies in Information Systems and Technology.

Last but not least, I live and work in Frankfurt, and enjoy traveling, hiking, and experiencing new things :)
