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

From November 2014 till October 2017 I was a member of the graduate school SOAMED. Since November 2014 I am a research assistant at the Business Process Technology research group at Hasso Plattner Institut.
