I received my diploma degree in Informatics from University of Tirana in 2009. Additionally, from 2011 till 2014 I continued my studies at the University of Paderborn, where I received my master degree in Computer Science. My work on the master thesis was about deriving business processes out of business models of networked enterprises.

Since November 2014 I am a member of the graduate school SOAMED and research assistant at the Business Process Technology research group at Hasso Plattner Institut.
