My interest and active involvement with databases is already 30 years long. Today, my primary research interest is in Relational and XML (Extensible Markup Language) database constraints. In these regards, I pay particular attention to the parallelism between relational and XML database constraints.
I am also interested in conceptual, logical, and physical database design, in query optimization issues, and Data Warehousing.
Until recently, my research interest was focused on an intelligent Database Design Case Tool.

I held a variety of teaching positions at the University of Belgrade and the University of Novi Sad.
In 2000 I joined Victoria University of Wellington, first in the School of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science, and now in the new School of Engineering and Computer Science.
