Personal profile


Jana works as a Research Fellow at the University of Western Australia (UWA) focusing on marine renewable energy. She is passionate about green technologies, and is applying her mathematical and numerical skills to solve challenging and practically important problems in the field of hydrodynamics.

Jana’s work focuses on wave energy converters, which are machines designed to convert wave energy into electricity. She is also studying floating wind turbines, which allow expansion of wind energy into deeper water, thus benefiting from the more abundant wind resource. Her work contributes towards safer, more reliable and more economical marine energy systems.

Jana has a PhD in coastal and ocean engineering from the University of Oxford, UK, and her undergraduate and Masters degrees were in mathematics.
