I have always been curious by nature and on the move all the time. After high-school (Gimb) I studied business and economics and did my masters at FELU. My doctoral dissertation Effects of HR Practices on Knowledge Transfer in Knowledge-Intensive Firms: The Mediating Role of Social Network Dimensions was supervised by Nada Zupan and Jaap Paauwe. The doctoral research project combined three areas that are still on top of my research interests: social networks, human resource management, and knowledge transfer.
At the moment, I am an assistant professor of management at the Department for Management and Organization, University of Ljubljana, where I teach various HRM courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. My research was published at the Organization Science, Human Resource Management, International Journal of Human Resource Management, European Journal of International Management, International Journal of Manpower and Economic & Business Review. Networking in the international academic community I am frequently involved in organizing academic conferences, workshops and tracks and a member of AOM and INSNA. I also serve on editorial boards of the Human Resource Management and Economics and Busienss Review. Interaction between research and practice is high on my agenda – therefore, I am involved in Slovenian Association of HR professionals and regularly work on applied projects, where I disseminate knowledge and learn from interesting companies.
I spend most of my free time with my wife and kids, if possible travelling or enjoying the great outdoors. Windsurfing, snowboarding, mountaineering, skiing and beach-volley have been my favorite sports since my teens.
