Summary

Ana Vodopivec studied Electrical Engineering at the University of Sarajevo. Afterwards she studied computer science and physics at the University of Würzburg where she received her computer science diploma in 2000.
Ana then spent three years in the automotive supplier industry, where she worked as a hardware and software developer, collected experience in firmware development, embedded software development, planning and implementation of testing software and maintenance of existing hardware applications. She added a second executive two-year-master-study, Executive MBA "Business Integration" at the University of Würzburg, including two modules in the USA. There she was able to deepen her business knowledge and skills such as leadership, problem solving ability, mastery of presentation techniques, and she obtained her second degree, a master in Business Administration, in 2006.
At the Service Center Research Support and Technology Transfer of University Würzburg she was active with very different tasks: These range from start-up advice (support of academic entrepreneurs with innovative, technology-driven business ideas) to knowledge management and transfer (collaboration with external partners from industry, research funding, recruitment of external funding through various national and EU projects).
In April 2015 she joined the research team of Prof. Hakan Kayal as a research assistant and teacher at the department of Computer Science VIII of University Würzburg where she enjoys learning and trying new things again and again, to solve problems and to work scientifically.
