Jurica Babic
Jurica BabicPh.D. student
Jurica Babic is a Research and Teaching Associate at the Telecommunication Department of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb. He is a Ph.D. student at the same institution and a member of the “Social Networking and Computing Laboratory (socialLAB)” and the “Laboratory for Assistive Technologies and Alternative and Augmentative Communication (ICT-AAC)”.

His teaching and research activities are in a field of energy informatics, which aims to foster Information System (IS) skills and IS thinking to create sustainable systems of the future. His current research is focused on design of sustainable parking lots with electric vehicles. He also investigates how the transformative power of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can be used in Augmentative and Alternative Communication, which is an exciting research area that aims to improve e-Inclusion of people with complex communication needs. He is a Teaching Assistant on M.Sc. courses Telecommunication Software Development, Project Management and Mobile Software Agents, as well as B.Sc. courses Object Oriented Programming, Informatics and ProgrammingManagement in Engineering and Informatics. He represents the University of Zagreb in the international project Power TAC, aimed at development of an electricity trading simulation platform. He also participates in the SUZA programme (“from school to science and academia”) by conducting workshops on programming.

He is a member of IEEE and INFORMS associations.
